Shelter to Soldier™ is a CA 501c3 nonprofit organization that adopts dogs from local shelters and trains them to become psychiatric service dogs for post-9/11 combat veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or other injuries associated with traumatic service experiences. Every day, 20 US veterans and 1 active duty service member are lost to suicide. That’s an average of one life lost every 69 minutes. The suicide rate among the nation’s military personnel has spiked this year, eclipsing the number of troops dying in battle and on pace to set a record annual high since the start of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan more than a decade ago. PTSD is a major problem for our men and women in uniform, and its effects last far and beyond the battlefield.

When our friends at Shelter to Soldier reach out to Labs & More asking for a donation of a service dog candidate, we carefully consider who is among our top recommendations of dogs for them to evaluate.

They come, see the same potential we do and request to adopt those that fit into their program. Your donations and financial support of our fundraising efforts allowed us to donate dogs to Shelter to Soldier free of charge.

Many thanks to Shelter to Soldier for the work you do in our community, training and placing shelter dogs as service animals for post-9/11 combat veterans. We are proud to call you a partner.

Thank you to our donors and supporters who without your support we could not continue to rescue, rehabilitate and donate these worthy dogs to a priceless cause.

Please consider donating so that we may continue to rescue those dogs that may serve the critical role of psychological support to their veteran handler.  This is truly a beautiful platform to use those special dogs’ talents to serve our military personnel in honor of their service to our country.
