Paws for Patriots Joint Holiday Social & Fundraiser

The mission of the Paws for Patriots Program is to create and nurture a partnership between visually impaired or combat weary veterans and a guide dog, facilitating life's journey with mobility, independence and dignity. SGD has matched the visually impaired with guide dogs for over 30 years, and is accredited by the International Guide Dog Federation. SGD Paws for Patriots pairs highly trained guide dogs with visually impaired veterans; exceptional service dogs with veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder; well-behaved emotional support dogs with veterans for companionship and emotional support in the home; and calming therapy dogs working in military healthcare facilities.

SGD dogs are trained to form a physical barrier between the handler and surrounding people, bringing a calming effect against perceived threats. They provide a warm, physical presence to help mitigate stress reactions. Gaining confidence from these dogs, veterans expand their lives, regain independence and re-integrate into their communities.
