There was a time when stores were closed and every community had a parade or Memorial Service to honor those who had died in service to the nation. Today Memorial Day is for sales and picnics.
So many times we are confused about the meaning of Memorial Day. It is not a day for the living but rather a day to honor those who have died in service to their nation.
4 Paws 2 Freedom salutes the men and women of our Armed Forces who have given their lives so that we may be free. To us they have passed the torch of freedom which we cannot let be extinguished.
Dogs and humans have an amazing capacity to work in partnership with each other toward the well being of both.
Service dogs can help in many ways.
They can be trained to provide a buffer zone between their human and others, recognize repetitive motions, alert to the approach of someone from behind, guide their human to a safe place,interrupt nightmares and many other important tasks.
Service Dog Classes for Veterans are currently being offered for free to qualified teams thanks to the generosity of RRUFF Healing Heroes. We have a limited number of partial and full scholarships available for First Responders.
We are currently taking applications for September 2018 classes.
