Canine Angels Service Dogs for Disabled Veterans

Larry-AbbyOur nonprofit rescues dogs from shelters and trains them to become service dogs – accomplished canine assistants that can perform dozens of tasks for disabled American veterans and first responders.

Founded in 2011, Canine Angels has teamed dozens of veterans with service dogs that are helping them reclaim their independence, self-esteem and peace of mind. Our veterans have experienced relief from PTSD, night terrors, fear of crowds, irritability and anger. They are able to rejoin family activities again, with help from their Canine Angels.


Freedom is Not Free

DIiva KissDIiva KissThrough their sacrifices, our military men and women have made possible the privArlene  Hall  + Muffincroppedileges and opportunities every DIiva KissAmerican enjoys. It’s a debt we can never fully repay, but Canine Angels is ready to help every dog and veteran we possibly can. President and founder Rick Kaplan donates his time and expertise in canine behavior to transform doomed dogs into responsive, obedient canine allies. It’s a win-win-win for overcrowded shelters, homeless dogs, and veterans who suffer from physical and emotional wounds.

Their mission was to keep us free – ours is to give them back the freedom to
enjoy life again.
