Paws for Patriots™


Veteran Mike Jernigan and guide dog Brittany in Veterans CourtyardGenerations of veterans have sacrificially served our country. They leave family, train tough, and survive extreme conditions. Some endure explosions and injuries, and many have lost their vision or suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress. Our Paws for Patriots programs serve active duty soldiers and retired servicemen and women with the respect and dignity they deserve. Veterans have served for freedom’s sake, and now they deserve the freedom to navigate with heads high and renewed confidence.

On behalf of American heroes who have sacrificed so much, Southeastern Guide Dogs presents Paws for Patriots:
