Review for Sarasota Manatee Association For Riding Therapy Inc, Bradenton, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Oz and I attend the Warrior's In Transition program at SMART. Oz is a pet therapy dog, but what really makes him special is that he is a rescue dog with a back leg amputation. Veterans are really drawn to him and immediately start to relax while they visit with him. This helps them get even more from the wonderful equine therapy program they are their to attend. I am so thankful for what SMART does for our veterans AND appreciate they were so open minded to us joining them. We (Paws and Warriors) have also helped several of these veterans we have met adopt rescue dogs themselves as companion, emotional support or potential service dogs!

Review for Sarasota Manatee Association For Riding Therapy Inc, Bradenton, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My pet therapy dog Oz and I volunteer with SMART for their Warriors In Transition program helping Veterans and active military with PTSD and TBI. I am a volunteer and donor to SMART because they offer so many great programs that support our community. SMART is also helping make it possible for me to do more to help Veterans locally instead of outside of our county at the VA. SMART not only provides riding therapy that heals individuals, they provide our citizens of all age levels and demographics the opportunity to volunteer and make a difference in the lives of others.
