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.

Healing4heroes has changed my life! I would not be able to do what I do now without Reign. From the trainers looking out for you to the friends you make at the classes everyone has each other’s back. Everyone understands what you are going through without judging, to me that is a huge deal. And having Reign by my side I feel like I can go do things again.

Healing4Heroes is absolutely amazing, they helped me when I received an untrained, near out of control "service" dog from another trainer. I was in a very bad place when I found them, but everyone there has helped me so much. Thanks to them, me and my dog are a real team and he's come so far with their help and he now helps me in so many ways. We'd never have been able to make it this far without H4H.

The VA told me that I needed a service dog and I was having trouble finding one. I was told by several organizations that since I was pre 911 that they couldn't help. Healing4Hero's took me in and changed my life. I can't thank Piper and Suzanne enough. They matched me with Parker and Parker and I have become inseparable. Much love and respect for all involved.

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.

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

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.

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!!
