When people think of medical service dogs, they usually think of guide dogs for the blind, or perhaps they think of a therapy dog (please note that a therapy dog is not the same as a service dog). While a guide dog is a service dog, there are many other amazing jobs that these incredible canines can be trained to do.

These very special dogs help to give people back their self-confidence and independence. We are so often told how vulnerable a disabled person feels in a crowd or maneuvering in a large public area such as an airport. With their loyal and highly trained service dog at their side, recipients often report the ease of once-again facing public spaces.

Guardian Angels won the 7th Annual Veterans Award for Suicide Prevention from the Academy of the United States Veterans (AUSV) for their work with veterans and suicide prevention for the second year in a row! The award is not just for the service dog industry; it’s for all for-profits and non-profits that help veterans.

Of all these organizations across the country, Guardian Angels won the award for the most success in preventing suicide. Four years ago, Guardian Angels was also awarded for the work they do for mental health with veterans.

We are in our 12th year and have paired nearly 400 teams across the country. We have never had a suicide, yet the national statistics tell us that there are up to 22 suicides a day in our veteran community, and our first responder community parallels that, and chances are our civilian communities parallel that as well.
