  • Trained dogs have gone on to work in every state in the U.S. and 13 countries abroad.
  • Dog Tags program specifically focuses on providing service dogs to wounded veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.

Puppies Behind Bars trains prison inmates to raise service dogs for war veterans. Dogs are trained to work with both physical disabilities as well as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). PTSD veterans who receive these animals are often able to sleep through the night for

the first time in years, get off of multiple medications, and in most cases enjoy an overall better quality of life. And, because each dog’s initial training happens in prisons they are also able to positively influence the life on an inmate and give them a chance to contribute back to society.
