Meet Kira!

James and his family are from Fayetteville, North Carolina. James is an 18 year Veteran in the US Army.  He was medically discharged in January 2012.

James suffers from PTSD and other neurological disorders as well as Joint Disabilities from being airborne.   We look forward to Kira growing and training to be a working Service Dog so that James can live an easier life with his PTSD.  His family came to visit us last week, to pick up Kira.  Here is a letter that James Wife Jennifer Shared with us upon arriving home.  Remember to Support our Veterans!  

Ted,

Thank you so much for helping my husband James and "Kira" find each other.  The day we spent with you is definitely a milestone for James recovery and management of PTSD.  The time you took for us meant so much.  The whole family enjoyed the demonstration we saw with Tebow too!

We arrived home safe and Kira is getting used to her forever home quickly.  The two of them are already bonding well.  We will continue to keep you updated on their progress.  Here are

Thanks Again! 

Jennifer Morton
