Service Dogs for Veterans with PTSD - RRUFF Healing Heroes

 22 Veterans  die by suicide every day – that’s one every 65 minutes.  RRUFF Healing Heroes exists for the sole purpose of being a catalyst for hope and change. Their mission is to fund  service dog training classes for Disabled American Veterans with Post  Traumatic Stress Disorder and other invisible disabilities. They do this  1 Veteran & 1 Dog at a Time.  

Each step you take is one step closer to supporting 1 Veteran and 1 Dog


 Pose with your pals and your pooch! 

The Grateful Dog 2018 will have a photographer onsite to take your picture and post them online.
