Military Dogs Get A Whole New Chance

There is an organization that has been created in the United States and has the potential to put therapy for both military dogs and U.S. veterans on the map. This wonderful organization is Save-A-Vet. You will not want to miss learning about it!

Save-A-Vet was established to rescue military dog veterans after they have served their tour of duty. Unlike human veterans, many of whom have a great deal of difficulty with readjusting to the real world once they return, the dogs sometimes don’t even get an opportunity to try to adjust. When the dogs return, if they cannot be rehabilitated quickly substantiate themselves to life as a housedog, many of them will be susceptible to euthanasia.

In order to eliminate the chance that these heroes lose their lives after saving many, Save-A-Vet was realized. With this life-saving operation, or at least one aspect of it, the dogs are paired with human vets, the pair gets a home and the saving process begins. Both the dog and the human help each other with PTSD, loss and sadness; they aid one another in acceptance, emotional, physical, and devotional ways.

Danny Scheurer and his kind heart developed this fantastic organization; first Save-A-Vet was formulated in his heart and then for real once he returned from the Iraq War as a veteran. The idea came when Danny discovered that one of the military contractors was about to have their contract cut. This company produced K-9s for the government but when they got the negative news, they decided to leave the corporate-owned K-9s behind – right in one of the most dangerous places in Bagdad simply to save themselves a few bucks on transport!

Due to the poor decisions of organizations like that one, Danny resolved himself to save the military working dogs that he was so very fond of. He was determined to fight for the same honor and care for the military working dogs as the human veterans receive. Danny fulfilled his mission once he returned home and started Save-A-Vet! Now he and all of his crew work to rescue military and law enforcement working dogs and even other service animals from the risk of euthanasia when they have completed their service to our great nation and/or the community in which they live. The company also strives to finance housing and assistance to the veterans that are willing to take care of the retired service canines.

Save-A-Vet’s Mission is accomplished through an inclusive four-point program:

1. Awareness
2. Advocacy
3. Adoption
4. Rescue
