Daniel De La Rosa has been training his 4 year old greyhound Hero to help those with physical disabilities.
“This organization was started by Sarah Donna Day Blood and I am the vice president,” said De La Rose. “She was inspired by her grandfather, who was a veteran himself, and he had a couple of service dogs.”
Service Dogs 4 Servicemen’s mission is to place fully trained service dogs with US Military Veterans in need. The dogs in the program are from various rescue agencies, as well as a few selectively bred puppies. Veterans are selected through an application process and matched with the appropriate dog.
Service Dogs 4 Servicemen is now accepting applications to match Hero with a veteran. Visit their website for more details.
