Here's how you can support Charlie during National Military Appreciation Month

This month we’re supporting our partner, America’s VetDogs, in their mission to raise money to send 10 future service dogs to school. You, too, can help support Operation VetDogs!

TODAY is excited to support the work being done by America’s VetDogs to help veterans and first responders by pairing them with dogs who can offer both physical and emotional support. Their powerful mission: "To help those who have served our country honorably live with dignity and independence."

Through the organization's service dog program, VetDogs trains guide dogs, hearing dogs, service dogs, facility dogs, seizure response dogs and PTSD service dogs.

Training, raising and placing of assistance dogs can cost upwards up $50,000. But at America's VetDogs, clients receive the dog free of charge thanks to funding from outside corporations and individual contributions.
