Service Dogs of NM shares their success in helping Veterans and others with disabilities

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- - Service Dogs of NM share their success stories of helping Veterans and others with disabilities.

Service Dogs of New Mexico is a passionate veteran owned and operated 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been in business for nearly two years with great success and growth.

They place dogs with veterans, as well as children and adults with challenges, requiring a service dog. The dogs come from foster care facilities and rescue groups to assure they are service dog worthy. They create a specific training plan for every client according to their needs, provide training at their facility, the clients’ homes and at Duke City Training.

SDNM believes that training handlers to train their service dogs forms a concrete bond that is necessary between a service dog and its owner.

SDNM is seeking assistance for the following items:

  • Funding and labor assistance to build a small building to house out of town clients overnight.
  • Sponsored support to cover the cost of training for veterans.
  • Sponsored support or volunteers to help with the art program we would like to set up for our children with challenges. This would benefit them by building their confidence, allowing them to make friends with other children with challenges.

For more information, visit the SDNM website.
