Springfield Service Dogs

Even Heroes Need Heroes

We are committed to uniting service dogs with military veterans. We do this by generating awareness of the benefits of service dogs, and hosting fundraisers throughout the year so we can help sponsor their training. Thanks to the continuous generosity of our pet parents and community supporters, we're making an impact.

We're honored to highlight our furry, four-legged heroes who have graduated from training as loyal, hardworking companions for the brave men and women who served our country. It's hard work to become a service dog for a veteran and only the best make the cut. The need for service dogs among veterans is great and with your support, we hope to sponsor many more.

Name:

Poppy

Service Dog Organization:

K9's for Warriors

Poppy is our 6th sponsored Service Dog for a Veteran through https K9's for Warriors!  Poppy has been doing amazing with her K9 for Warriors trainers.  Poppy has been working on some high-level exposures lately. Picture this: a trip to the zoo, bustling with crowds and intriguing scents; a journey through the airport, navigating busy terminals and loud announcements; or even a relaxing outing to the movies, where she remained calm and focused amidst the excitement on the screen and in the theater. These experiences have been invaluable in sharpening her focus, building her confidence, and reinforcing her ability to remain composed in stimulating environments.

Stay tuned for updates on Poppy's progress!
