[intro-paragraph]Well all our Labradors are born for some kind of purpose. Family, Service, Military, Working and so on. However, sometimes Labs are bred and born for a very particular special purpose.[/intro-paragraph]
A LABfan sent me a link to a wonderful page about Misty, a Warrior Canine Connection Labrador, that has just had a litter of Lab puppies. Little did I know that clicking the link would bring instant happiness, introduce me to such a wonderful cause and create an addiction.
[box title=”Meet Warrior Canine Connection”]
Warrior Canine Connection TM (WCC) is a therapeutic service dog training program that harnesses the healing power of the human-animal bond. WCC TM teaches Service Members with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) the skill of training mobility service dogs to be partnered with Veterans with mobility impairments. This worthy mission is specifically designed to reduce the symptoms of PTSD in the Warriors who train the dogs–and the great news is, it works! These Warrior-trained service dogs are then partnered with Veterans to provide them years of loyal companionship as well as an increased sense of wellbeing and independence.
Warrior Canine Connection TM serves four vital military missions:
- Provide Service Members and Veterans with PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) the opportunity to be part of a critical military-support mission helping fellow Wounded Warriors.
- Offer a safe, effective, and inexpensive non-pharmaceutical therapeutic intervention for the treatment of PTSD.
- Provide highly skilled service dogs that will provide years of mobility and social support to Veterans with disabilities.
- Strengthen the bonds and relieve stress in military families.
