When I learned about the story of Laura and Hero Pups I was thoroughly impressed. She is a woman on a mission and she is doing some amazing work that is truly helping people. I highly recommend Hero Pups and the work that they do.
What started as an organization that trains therapy dogs for veterans and first responders has grown into training Comfort Dogs for police departments and even has a training program in a local jail. Hero Pups is still 100% volunteer and does not charge recipients for their dog.
One of the most impressive things I have seen with Hero Pups is their ability to stretch donor dollars as far as possible and they have no paid positions. This foundation will prove valuable in sustainability as they attract larger donors and are therefore able to help more people.
Working with Hero pups is one of the most rewarding parts of the day
Love that they use shelter dogs and volunteers. They sent me a card saying thank you for a donation which you dont see much nowdays.
I’ve been volunteering with Hero Pups for a while now, it’s an amazing team of people who I’m proud to work with. Everyone is so dedicated and so focused on their mission, it’s a breath of fresh air every time I work with them!
Love working with this team. Great mission, great people and helping pups
my story is complicated but she took the time to listen and me and my wife. We couldn’t think of life with out our fur baby.
They take good care of the dogs and the people. You can tell they like what they do. Would highly recommend them.
Innovative, caring, and committed group. They all volunteer to they can make a difference.
Passion, progressive, personal and POWERHOUSE!!
Heropups is run by a dynamic, fabulous, fierce, fearless and on fire leader....Laura Barker. She had such a personal and emotional reason for creating this organization and boy does it show in how she promotes it, speaks from her heart and gathers just the right people to support her, the heros and the pups.
Jon Morton is the media representative and couldn't be a better choice. He is a veteran and the proud owner of rescue pups himself, and is so passionate about how being a contribution makes him feel that he is in the process of writting a book on the subject!
The funds are properly appropriated, the volunteers are on point and the cause couldn't be better!
Best volunteers around! Each one of them contributes in his/her own way to help our veterans and first responders. It is because of those volunteers that we are able to put every dollar raised into the direct care of pups we are training.
