Canine Guardians

Canine Guardians

What We Do:

Provide specially trained assistance dogs to veterans with PTSD and people with disabilities. One veteran stated, “I’d be in a very bad place in life without my Canine Guardian lifesaver, Liberty!” Our dogs cause life-saving change by helping with physical needs and emotional uplift. They bestow calm, comfort, and devoted love.

Can a dog save a life? Liberty’s owner says, “Absolutely. Dogs save lives, marriages, and families! I was a Corps helicopter gunner. After I got out, I roller-coastered with extreme emotions. If sad, I was distraught; angry, I went ballistic. Then, I met Liberty! My wife credits Liberty with saving me/marriage.”

CG dogs have long-term positive, healthy impact.

Can dogs change a life? Patriot’s owner says, “He’s my best friend, a blessing in my life and brings calm to my day everywhere we go.”

We are making a huge difference in people’s lives, one dog at a time. 

Other Ways to Help:

  • Puppy Parenting (with regular training)
  • Grant Writing
  • Fundraising Help
  • Website Design / Newsletter Marketing

Business Partners:

Marcia Hadeler, Realtor at Coldwell Banker, will donate $100 to Canine Guardians every time $1000 in donations accumulates.


No more nightmares! I sleep so peacefully with my CG boy. This is huge for me! Every morning he wakes me and his joy is instantly infectious. He gives me far more than I can ever possibly give him. Thank you for this life-changing experience. My deepest thanks.
