ABILITY NOT DISABILITY
Currently there are over 900,000 injured servicemen and women in the country and that number continues to grow on a daily basis. The unique mental attitude of serving personnel, and of those in the emergency services means that only a handful so far have chosen to have an assistance dog provided by the civilian offerings.
When the guns fall silent on the battlefield. or the sirens stop wailing in the streets, the battle with disability, trauma and bereavement go on forever for all those affected. It is in the aftermath of conflict and trauma that Hounds For Heroes dogs will come into their own. Taught to problem solve, and to be intuitive, our dogs will remove the sense of disability in the clients life and replace it with a feeling of ability.
Hounds For Heroes will partner a client with a “cadet” dog, enabling them to start the journey that will restore their dignity and self worth. Through the partnership they will regain the unique feeling of loyalty, trust and team spirit that is lost on leaving the military or civilian services.
