The North Carolina non-profit Wags4Tags is working hard to achieve its mission of providing trained companion and emotional support dogs to veterans who need them. The program highlighted by the University of North Carolina in this video trains the dogs that have been rescued from kill shelters across the state. Once trained the dog is matched with a veteran who has completed the program’s application process and been approved. Wags4Tags requires the veteran attend hands on sessions with their new companion to teach them skills needed to care for the dog and provides the initial supplies needed to care for the dog.
