Where Are The Veterans We Serve?
The Rescue 22 Foundation serves a diverse cadre of veterans across our nation. R22 does not impose geographic restrictions, as many veterans reside in areas where there are simply a lack of resources within the veteran/service dog non-profit sector. All R22 service dogs are trained for each veteran’s specific need and integrated directly into their home environment.
