Wounded Warrior Project and paws4people = paws4vets in West Virginia

The Wounded Warrior Project® [ ] and the paws4peopleTM foundation [], in Strategic Partnership, announce the creation and implementation of:

The paws4vetsTM Program, a Morgantown, WV based, unique and dynamic, K-9 centered, recovery/intervention program for Veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Complex Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (C-PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This program primarily uses dogs rescued from shelters prior to their being euthanized.

The AfghanDogZTM Program, a Morgantown, WV based, program designed to bring dogs from the war zone in Afghanistan to the United States. These dogs were adopted by American soldiers serving in Afghanistan. Some soldiers are able to bring the dogs they adopted home (to the U.S.) while others are not. These remaining dogs then become available to the AfghanDogZ Program.

What does this have to do with Southern Maryland? - paws4people and its assistance dog programs and online assistance to other nonprofits is rapidly expanding throughout the Washington DC area and surrounding regions.

Also, the nonprofit paws4people Foundation is largely supported by donations and purchase of their online charity raffle tickets - support a Veteran, support a service dog, and possibly win great cash!
