Veterans Moving Forward is a 501(c)(3) public charity founded by veterans to help alleviate the critical need for assistance dogs for our nations heroes. Our mission is to provide service dogs to veterans with physical and mental health challenges.
While there are many organizations providing assistance/service dogs to individuals of all ages with physical and mental health challenges, veterans are under-served. Merely dozens of veterans have received financial support from the VA in recent years, and estimates are less than 200 veterans received service dogs through private placement in the last two years.
We at Veterans Moving Forward, can and will do better to meet the critical need for rehabilitating veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI) and physical disabilities through the use of canine therapy – the medicine without side effects.
We are motivated to honor the veterans who served and the Wounded Warriors who volunteered to protect the freedom of all Americans.

Watch VMF volunteers talk about their experiences raising puppies to be service dogs or engaging with veterans during their therapy sessions. These great volunteers and their highly-trained canines make VMFs vision so much easier and rewarding!
