Hello Friends!


Hero's Puppy for Life Organization, formerly known as Veteran's Puppy for Life, provides PTSD service dogs not only to veterans, but also to emergency first responders. We changed our name to make it clear that our services are not exclusive to veterans only.


The name "Hero's Puppy for Life" uses the possessive form intentionally because our mission is to provide a puppy to a hero who has suffered trauma while serving our country and communities. The puppy is meant to help them recover and return to the life they lost.


The puppy we provide is permanent, meaning that it will be the recipient's companion for the life of the puppy or the individual recipient.

Hi There! Did find one of our bookmarkers? Thank you for visiting Hero's Puppy for Life Organization's website. Hero's Puppy for Life (HPFL) provides our Hero's with a puppy. We provide the service dog training for both the puppy and our Hero recipient. They grow together and that puppy grows to become their service dog. Please contribute to Hero's Puppy for Life Organization! Without the support of others we cannot complete our mission of "Helping to Heal Wounded Souls...One Puppy at a Time!" P.S. If you know of a school that would like bookmarkers for their students, please let us know. Reading to a puppy is great for both the person and the puppy! And, it helps motivate a child to read!



When we started the Veteran's Puppy for Life Program through the Military Order of the Purple Heart, Chapter 1041 in 2015 the goal was to provide one service dog for one United States Veteran living with Post-traumatic Stress Disorder.

In June of 2016, we became the 501(c)(3) nonprofit Veteran's Puppy for Life Organization.  Since the inception of this mission, we have graduated seventy-seven puppies as PTSD service dogs for both U.S. Armed Forces Veterans and Emergency First Responders living with PTSD.

We could have never imagined years ago starting with a simple goal, that so many lives would be touched by our endeavors.

Your support over the years is necessary for 
"Helping to Heal Wounded Souls...

One Puppy at a Time!"
