Paws & Stripes
Since 2014, Animal Humane has proudly partner with Paws and Stripes (P&S) to place our adoptable dogs with the veterans they serve. This Albuquerque-based nonprofit matches homeless dogs with military veterans experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder and brain injuries. P&S service dog trainers work with veteran/dog teams so that both live better lives together.
This journey begins with Animal Humane’s expert Behavior Team identifying which of our shelter dogs are potential P&S candidates. If chosen by a veteran, our dogs are adopted at no cost to the men and woman who selflessly served our country; and each pet begins the next exciting chapter of their life fully vaccinated, microchipped, sterilized and behavior trained by our Team. Dogs that are not chosen by P&S clients are often adopted by individuals seeking a perfect partner to begin pet therapy work at local schools, hospitals and retirement communities.
