WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA, May 26, 2023 — Today, American Humane, the country’s first national animal welfare organization, announced a partnership with MITER Brands to support its Pups4Patriots program. The $60,000 contribution from MITER Brands—a leading window and door manufacturer—will help fund efforts to train service dogs for veterans diagnosed with post-traumatic stress or traumatic brain injury.
American Humane is committed to harnessing the healing power of the human-animal bond to put more healing leashes into the hands of more veterans in need. Through Pups4Patriots, American Humane finds dogs in search of forever homes and trains them to be lifesaving service dogs. To date, American Humane has provided service dogs and training to more than 200 veterans across the country.
“Our military veterans have put their lives on the line to protect our freedoms and now they need our help,” said Dr. Robin Ganzert, President and CEO of American Humane. “The Pups4Patriots program—which helps our returning heroes who suffer from mental or physical scars of war—would not be possible without the generosity of companies like MITER Brands. This grant will go directly towards helping veterans access service dogs that will allow them to live their lives to the fullest. After all, there is no better medicine than a wagging tail.”
“American Humane does fantastic work through the Pups4Patriots program,” said Gwen Mallon, an Executive Assistant at MITER Brands who also serves as the MITER Foundation Specialist. “Veteran support is one of the pillars of the MITER Foundation, so we jumped at the opportunity to help join our wounded veterans with these amazing service dogs.”
The Pups4Patriots program is made possible through the generous support of donors. To learn more and contribute to the program, visit www.AmericanHumane.org.
