Meet Forester, the latest puppy from @warriorcanineconnection's most recent liter. 

He recently transitioned from the Healing Quarters to his Puppy Parent who will help support, nurture, and train Forester. The journey to becoming a fully trained Service Dog for a Veteran can take approximately two years. 

Warrior Canine Connection utilizes its Mission Based Trauma Recovery model to help wounded Warriors reconnect with life, their families, their communities, and each other.

We are glad to know that Mark still has a part in helping veterans in need. And Warrior Canine Connection is a worthwhile organization where you can consider donating. 2021 brought its largest Service Dog Team Graduation to date!
