About Veterans Moving Forward:

Veterans Moving Forward Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that raises, trains and provides certified service dogs and canine therapy services for veterans, with physical and/or mental health challenges, at no cost to the veteran or their family.

Our Vision: To be a leading source of service dogs and canine therapy services provided to veterans with physical and/or mental health challenges. To make a meaningful difference in the lives of our Nation’s veterans, and increase their safety and independence within their homes and communities.

  • Veteran and Service Dogs are matched based on personality and temperament, needs of the Veteran and the skill set of the dog
  • We will assist in linking the Veteran with a veterinarian near the Veterans home to provide follow up care for the Service Dog
  • VMF follow up support and communication to include monthly communications, monthly health and welfare reports, a 3 month visit from VMF canine team at the Veterans home and then on an as needed basis for future support
  • Yearly checkups to include a Public Access Test and refresher training
