We have an obligation to our heroes who have sacrificed so much for us.

Who We Are

Founded in 2007 by a WWII Veteran and liberated POW, Vets Helping Heroes, Inc. is a National not-for-profit charity with tax exempt status under section 501c(3) of the IRC.  Since its founding, Vets Helping Heroes has raised almost $7,000,000 and has sponsored over 300 properly-trained assistance dogs (Guide Dogs, Service Dogs and Facility Dogs) for wounded American Veterans and Active-Duty Military personnel who can benefit from an assistance dog.

Our Mission

The Mission of our all-volunteer working board, comprised primarily of retired military personnel, is to raise funds to purchase properly-trained assistance dogs to help the heroes who have worn the uniform of our Country and who have received physical and/or psychological wounds in so doing.

How Our Heroes Benefit

Assistance dogs provide independence and service 24/7/365. Guide Dogs allow the visually or hearing impaired Veteran to be independent, giving back their sense of being a whole person navigating the world. Service Dogs assist Veterans with mobility and balance issues stand and walk safely and independently; and help those with PTSD and TBI. Facility Dogs provide a source of unconditional love to Veterans who are confined in hospitals or in other facilities for long-term care, as well as on active-duty military bases to provide a needed calming influence.



All donations are tax deductible and you will be emailed your tax receipt.
