Here's my story: I recently retired from the Air Force a few months ago, I needed something to fulfill my passion for volunteering.
I met the founder of the Labs for Liberty Organization about 2 years but never in a million years did I think I'd have the opportunity to work with them. I started off fostering pups like Hagrid, it then developed into task training and helping with the campus club pups at the university, all of which you'll see below.
There is an average of 20 veteran suicides per day according to the latest poll. That's horrific! This organization is committed to training service dogs to lessen that number!
My journey over these last few months have been amazing, I've met some wonderful veterans. Being able to pay back my fellow brothers and sisters in arms is a euphoric feeling I can't put into words. Here's to our active duty, retired, guard and reserve folks serving in our fine military & to this AWESOME organization supporting them! ! ! !
Let's meet some of our awesome pups in the program, shall we . . . But don't let the name fool you, they all aren't Labrador Retrievers
