The Asheville-based site of the national veteran service dog training organization, Warrior Canine Connection (WCC), is holding a meet and greet at the Veterans Healing Farm (VHF), June 29, from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm.
This info session will give attendees a better understanding of the positive power of the human and animal bond and how they can join this program to help veterans heal through animal-assisted therapy. Warrior Canine Connection enlists recovering Warriors in a therapeutic mission of learning to train service dogs for their fellow veterans.
Mission Based Trauma Recovery (MBTR) is a unique, no-fail mission that enlists veterans to help train service dogs for other veterans in need. MBTR benefits the veteran trainers as much as it does the dog and their future “Forever Veteran.” Come learn about Warrior Canine Connection, meet the service dogs in training, and see the program in action. Wounded Warrior Project Alumni are encouraged to attend.
The Veterans Healing Farm is a 501c3 nonprofit founded in 2014 that enhances the mental, emotional and physical well-being of our nation’s veterans through agri-therapy and community. For more information, and to register please contact the VHF at 828-595-6111 or [email protected].
