Saving Both Ends of the Leash®

Please click here for the most up-to-date information on operations during COVID-19.

Launched in 2011 as a service providing emotional support animals to U.S. military heroes, ARF's flagship program now also transforms rescue dogs into skilled service animals for veterans with PTSD, traumatic brain injuries, anxiety, severe depression, and more.

Like trusted battle buddies, ARF's Pets and Vets dogs are invaluable partners for veterans readjusting to civilian life, providing powerful therapeutic and practical benefits. Proven benefits include:

  • Reducing anxiety, panic, depression, and symptoms of PTSD
  • Providing stability and companionship
  • Inspiring sociability
  • Establishing routines and self-care practices

Unlike service dog programs costing thousands of dollars and involving long waitlists, ARF matches veteran-dog teams quickly and at no cost to the veteran.
