I have been involved with Operation Freedom Paws for over 4 years now. I started as a client with my dog Abbey in July 2012. Abbey and I became a certified team in June 2013. This program has saved my life and given me a new purpose. OFP has become a very important part of my and my family's life. We have continued in training and now I also serve as a Board Member which I have found to be very rewarding. Seeing changes in lives of other clients as well as my own has been one of the greatest things to be apart of. This is a wonderful organization and I honored to be to be serving with it.

I am a Vietnam Veteran with PTS. My Great Dane, Abbey, and I were accepted into the Operation Freedom Paws "family" by founder/President Mary Cortani in July, 2012. We were certified as a Service Dog Team in June, 2013. Due to my situation at the time, I committed to attending two to three sessions per week. The time Abbey and I spent training was needed for completely bonding. A tremendous amount of healing was going on at the same time. Abbey and I look forward to seeing old and new friends in our training sessions. It's difficult for me to describe how thankful I am to OFP for teaching me the skills needed for finding a new "normal" for myself and my family.

I've been fortunate enough to be involved with OFP from the very first pairing of Veteran and Shelter Dog, what a life altering journey this has been for me. I love volunteering and giving my time to this amazing organization. My father is a Marine and I grew up surrounded by military personnel and i understand first hand what those families go through. It brings great joy to me to see the difference this organization and Mary Cortani can make in the lives of our Veterans and their families. As a dog owner and lover the fact that OFP uses dogs from Shelters and local rescue groups is another great reason to support this organization.
