To ensure veterans with PTSD have access to the same benefits as other war heroes, America's VetDogs® partnered in 2014 with the Department of Public Health at Western Kentucky University to help measure the impact of PTSD service dogs.
"America's VetDogs® is one of the first assistance dog programs in the U.S. to be accredited by both the International Guide Dog Federation and Assistance Dogs International," said Wells Jones, chief executive officer. "Our partnership with Western Kentucky University will help ensure that our service dogs make a measurable difference in helping our country's veterans to live with pride and self-reliance."
