The latest program implemented by Rudy’s Rescue is HELPING HANS.
A rescue dog from a shelter that is deemed appropriate in temperament, demeanor and size, will be evaluated, enter into a training program free of charge to the veteran he or she will serve. With this program a dogs life will be saved along with one or more veterans having a constant companion and stress relief.
Once trained, these companion Support Dogs, Canine Good Citizen Dogs and Therapy Dogs will have the ability to decrease isolation of the veteran, decrease the need for many medications, decrease anxiety and panic attacks when in crowded public places, and finally allow families a stress free friend to relax and enjoy.
This extensive and costly training is at no charge to the veteran. Training can last 6-9 months or more depending on the age that the dog enters the program. Once training is completed and the American Kennel Club's Canine Good Citizenship classification is awarded to the team. The dog may also be eligible for service dog designation, according to the American Disabilities Act.
This is a vital program that has the heart and soul of many involved.
Hans is the first dog to enter into this program and we need your help to allow more dogs to be matched with veterans. See more information here. (Skip forward to 18:30 to see Hans.)
