Please ask your U.S. representative to cosponsor H.R. 2847, so that our "wounded warriors" with special needs can be partnered with service dogs who have been properly and humanely trained by legitimate, qualified organizations.

This is just one of many programmes that are so fantastic they need to be actively supported by all.
What a great way to get those dogs from shelters and into homes, and giving them a purpose for their lives.
I know from my own family experiences how much a dog turned things around for people in their lives. Be it training adult dogs from shelters , or puppies.

I would go one step further , and would train dogs to be assistance dogs for a variety of other dissabilities as well, such as anxiety, autism, many , too many to name.

These programmes deserve our wholehearted support!!

Wounded warriors should get help from service dogs. It would be a good idea.

Please contact your U.S. representative and ask that he/she cosponsor H.R. 2847 so that legitimate service dog training programs committed to humane standards will be better able to meet the needs of the many service members and veterans who can benefit from these amazing canine partnerships. Done

I wished there would be no wars, and we would not need any soldiers, nor dogs who might be killed.

reported spammers!
sent note about service animals to my Rep. This is the least we can do to really support the troops!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The Pentagon is getting tanksfull of money for arms, and what is left for our poor men and women soldiers who suffered mentally and physically is a crying shame!!!!!
The Pentagon should support the troops who have given so much to fight the wars that keep the Pentagon bu$y
