My husband and I received a facility dog that works with injured servicemen and women at military hospitals, support groups and sports rehabilitation events as part of CCI's Wounded Veteran Initiative. Our facility dog, Tali, lends her support by snuggling with injured troops as they heal in the hospital, she walks with them when they receive a new prosthetic limb and waits for them at the finish line after they compete in their first triathlon. Over the last year we have seen several CCI service dogs placed with permanently injured servicemen and women. Some of these individuals were not able to live on their own without assistance. However, with their assistance dogs, they can now live on their own without a roommate. Independence doesn't mean living alone. Many of these veterans now have "Battle Buddies" as they move on with their lives. We are grateful to have Tali and enjoy watching her as she connects with those in need. The Wounded Veteran's Initiative has and will continue to help our veterans regain independence.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the staff's passion to help veterans regain independence by placing assistance dogs with those who have permanent physical injuries. They truly care and are only a phone call away. They take the time to get to know you and place you with the right dog.
