OUR NATIONAL IMPACT
Since our founding in 2011, Project 2 Heal has served veterans, children with special needs, and adults with disabilities by donating world-class puppies to more than 25 service dog training organizations nationwide.
Due to our innovative nurturing and development programs, the success rate of our puppies in service dog training is astronomically high. (Our longest running partnership has a 90% success rate with Project 2 Heal puppies.) Take a scroll through some of the lives our puppies have changed!

Monthly donors—which we call, "Healing Pawtners"—are the foundation of Project 2 Heal and our mission of reducing the cost and time it takes to place a service dog with a person in need. We're the only nonprofit in the country dedicated to breeding, nurturing, and donating Labrador Retriever puppies to become service dogs for veterans, children with special needs, and adults with disabilities. Our work can change—and in some cases, save—lives of people in need.
