Painted Paws for Veterans is a Colorado Nonprofit Corporation and 501c3. They are dedicated to promoting canine companion ownership for Veterans and their Family members, in order to provide emotional support and a way to reconnect to life, both during and after military service.

Their primary mission is to assist Veterans and their Families in the adoption of canine companions by matching Veterans with dogs surrendered to rescues and animal shelters, and providing a visitation environment in which the Veteran will feel safe.

Their objectives are to achieve continued life for the dogs, encourage emotional growth and self-expression for the Veteran or Family member, and promote education of Veteran emotional issues, and how canine ownership can assist through the unconditional love of a companion animal.

For those Veterans whose living conditions prevent them from adopting a dog, they offer weekend retreats on a forty acre ranch in Peyton, Colorado. There, the Veteran will be able to spend time with a canine companion in a calm, quiet environment.

If you are interested in adopting a dog from Painted Paws for Veterans, please visit their webpage at: or call (719) 376-0857.
