Shelter to Soldier ~ Amazing Organization

“The minute I learned about Shelter To Soldier, I knew I wanted to be involved and support this most amazing organization.Di and Vic training academy
To me, there is nothing more worthwhile than saving the life of a loving, but helpless dog from a high kill shelter, and training
that dog to be a service companion to a most deserving veteran with irreversible physical and psychological wounds.
​I am always proud to say that Shelter to soldier is making a true impact by saving not one, but two precious lives at a time.”​

​In August of 2015 my several members of my family and I were given a tour of the training facility in Poway, CA.
Annie is a blue/brindle, 1.5 year old pointer/pit bull mix who was rescued from the shelter. They are both in the process of going through the training program and once they graduates, they will be placed as a service dog and loyal companion to an Iraqui War veteran. ​
