Heroes for Heroes

We are pleased to offer a new program to area military veterans. Through referrals from the Sanford Veterans Center, AWS will help match veterans with a suitable pet for companionship and emotional support. The AWS canine training staff will offer a six week basic training program to the veteran and his/her new dog. Both the adoption fee and training class fee will be waived.

We thank the Canine Community Corps for the initial funding for this program. We are honored to continue their mission of rescue, dignity and service.

To learn more about this program please contact Kevin Ward, Director of Community Programs at (207) 985-3244 ext. 107.
