Wounded Warrior Service Dog Program

Wounded Warrior Service Dog Program (WWSDP)

The United States Congress began funding the Wounded Warrior Service Dog Program in 2015. The purpose was to establish a grant program to foster the training of assistance dogs for placement with service members and veterans. Since then, the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) awarded grants to 108 nonprofit organizations in 27 states who specialize in training service dogs for those in need. This support resulted in matching over 500 service dogs with wounded warriors suffering from mobility, visual, auditory, or psychological/psychiatric disability
