I was in somewhat of an emergency situation and could not get help from the military. Other non-profits and the VA would not help because I was still active duty. H4H put a lot of effort into me; they really care. With other service dog non-profits, there were so many rules about who you were, what kind of dogs they would train, or how often you had to go for training that made it impossible for me to get help. H4H is different. They were very flexible and obviously concerned about me getting help over everything else. They took the time to learn what I was looking for in a dog and matched me with the perfect 4-legged battle buddy, but it didn't stop there. I also gained several 2-legged friends as they keep in touch with me. Since getting my service dog, I've been able to get help from them about training, service dog laws, dog health, or just talk when I needed to. I don't know how they do it. They're such a small organization yet those that work there seem to do the work of 10 men so you wouldn't even notice. They work really hard to make limited funds help as many vets as they can find. I highly recommend using and donating to this organization.
I had been struggling for years to make it to the next day. I had basically isolated myself from human contact because it was just too much to deal with after having a night of nightmares from the past. After going to my sister’s house to dog sit, I found what would help. I found H4H online and took a stab at it. I am so thankful that I did. Thanks to Piper, Suzanne, Robbie and everyone that works with this organization I am finally getting a life again. I was paired up with my dog, Zeus (Mini Zeus to the group) and I started to take my life back. I can now go out in public more than I did before. If I ever need help, everyone is there to help. This is a great organization that gives rescues a purpose and vets a new battle buddy.
We've taken 2 classes and I want to come back. I cannot begin to say how blessed we are to be involved with H4H. Piper, you, Suzanne and the whole group are awesome.
Great place and people that help Vers like myself find a companion. They are wonderful at what they do. I have found a new family
I ran into Piper one night at Ross in Peachtree City and she had her Service Pet with her. Her dog was beautiful and seemed to like my wife, so I sparked up a conversation with her about the dog and she told me about her nonprofit organization Healing4heros. I went home and did some research about it and thought it was great and something I was interested in. Well life happened, I had 2 Naval graduations to attend, some illnesses to recover from and I didn't think I would get the chance to be a part of the program. Well one day I was at VA clinic and guess who I bump into, Piper and Bobbi. They gave me a business card and told me to do an application. Took my class in July and it changed my life for the better..
Thank you Healing4heros for my new friend and Battle Buddy Pearl.
My husband fights with nightmares and PTSD. He doesn't like going to public places and often has anxiety and depression episodes where he just doesn't want to get out of bed. He applied for a service dog and was denied because he was pre-9/11. We were told about H4H and even though my husband didn't think he would get approved for a battle buddy he applied anyway. Not only was he approved, but his battle buddy literally chose him out of a room of veterans. They go through everything together now. My husband ventures out more and his episodes of anxiety and depression still happens, but he has a battle buddy to go through it with him. As a veteran's wife that hurts everytime my husband hurts, I am so highly grateful to H4H for what they do for veteran's. Thank you so much for what you do.
Words cannot express the heartfelt, sincere and all-encompassing giving spirit of Healing4Heroes. Every volunteer along with the trainer and founder have hearts of gold. We all have suffered some sort of traumatic event(s). Although not identical, everyone has a sense of empathy towards what we all went through. Sometimes words aren't necessary and a pat on the back or a caring look is sent our way. A battle buddy is trained for us and the follow-up after initial training is always available. I highly recommend this non- profit to all veterans. Its definitely worth the work to achieve the healing needed to become a productive member of society. I can't thank them enough for supporting and giving me the courage to forge ahead.
I simply cannot put into words the truly miraculous work that this non-profit does for service members, veterans, their families...and also showing in a truly professional manner what a great blessing a service dog can be to a warrior in need. Everyone involved has a heart of gold with the sole intent of helping others without monetary gain.
I applied and showed up skeptical...and after witnessing many miracles, and training with the dog they provided, I was blessed with both a renewed hope of others stepping forth to help our veterans, and a wonderful service dog of my own...who has helped me and my family immensely in more ways than I can describe. If I knew how I would praise this organization to the fullest extent...but for now all I can say is THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO....it saves, restores, preserves, & improves lives in an astonishing manner.
Most Sincerely & Respectfully,
Dr. John Lewis
Healing4Heros was a blessing to me! I was at a very dark place when I got accepted into the program and my life has been forever changed.
Wonderful people who put the dog and service member first!
This organization is one of the most caring and helpful ones out there. They connected me with my Service Dog and have been with me every step of the way. If I got discouraged, they were there to encourage me. Their training team were on the ball when it came to both my dog's and my training, so we learned to work as a team. All I know, that since Healing4Heroes has come into my life, my quality of living has risen exponentially. They connected me with the perfect partner and I can never thank them enough.
Healing4Heros organization pairs unwanted shelter dogs with veterans who have PTSD. The pair then attends training together that prepares the dog to be a service dog for the veteran. The involvement of the organization does not end with the training and placement of dog with the veteran. They provide ongoing support. There is no fee to the veteran.
This group has saved many soldiers lives. Piper and her staff have done an outstanding job setting this organization up to help Veterans. I thankful everyday that I am apart of this organization. I would rate them 10 stars if I could.
Meeting Piper and the Healing4Heroes family’s has completely changed my life forever. Having Coco in my life has helped me tremendously. I would rate them 10 stars if I could. One of the greatest families you’ll ever be apart of.
Healing4Heroes is making a difference in lives one dog at a time. Piper Hill and her amazing volunteers give so much of themselves for the betterment of others, particularly our incredible veterans. I am a civilian they graciously accepted into the program. They have a top-notch program steered with heart and compassion.
After my son was refused a service dog because of his digonoiss and because we had other "pets" in the home.I found H4H online and I contacted H4H to apply... they gladly accepted us into the program.. and placed us with a wonderful rescue dog. As cillivians they took us in and we felt out family extend to a great length. This orginazation is so amazing I cant give them enough stars!!
Not only have they accepted us into there family but they have also helped my son open up and with him having Atusim has done more than just provide him with a service dog.. they have helped my son in so many ways!!
Healing4Heroes is absolutely amazing! They brought my battle buddy and I together and my life has already been changed. I don’t know what I would have done without the wonderful people at H4H. Thank you for everything!!
This organization is amazing. We went to Georgia to get a service dog for my husband and the owner of the organization found out all the health issues I had and was worried my husbands dog would start working more for me then him they ended up giving me a service dog as well. They have no issues helping out the vets and their family. I really love this organization.
When I agreed to fostering my first dog for Healing 4 Heroes, I thought, what a great concept. When I actually took my foster dog, Zeke, to meet the veterans, I was blown away by the impact these dogs had on the veterans. And couldn’t wait to do more than just foster. I love spending that week every few months witnessing these dogs and vets bond during training. Seeing them come out out their shells. I am honored and thankful to be apart of such an amazing organization.
What an amazing group! The dedication they have to pair up Veterans with the perfect service dog is truly incredible. I have personally seen the difference H4H has made on the men and women who have served our country and it does not stop once the Veteran receives his or her dog. The support from the group continues for as long as needed and they become one big family.
Loving people pairing rescues together and creating battle buddies that function as a team! What a stellar organization and group of people! I can’t say enough good things!!! Love these folks!!!
I met Piper when she was just starting this program, and we talked a bunch, and figured out we had a lot more than rescuing dogs in common. She is a veteran herself, so immediately she had my respect. She bends over backwards to help couple service dogs with veterans, and if I had a million bucks, I would donate it to Healing4Heroes. In the meantime, I am a huge fan of this organization.
These folks are diligent in matching soldiers with service dogs they rescue from high kill shelters in the South. Amazing and a win - win for all involved.
Healing4Heroes is helping me to be able to do things as simple as grocery shopping again. I have more confidence since we started the program. My dog loves going to work. She gets so excited to go to work. She helps me in ways that most people cannot even comprehend. I am learning to function as a “normal” human being again. This program and the people involved have so much passion for helping people and animals. They aren’t just doing a service for people but the animals as well. They are serving the community by doing what they do!
