ONE VETERAN + ONE RESCUED DOG = LIFE2
THE MISSION OF DOC’s DOGS FOR VETERANS is to provide highly trained Assistance Service Dogs to veterans who will benefit from a canine companion. By adopting rescue dogs, both the dog and the veteran will gain a new lease on life.

The mission of Doc’s Dogs for Vets is to rescue trainable dogs who will, in turn, rescue the life of a vet. If you would like to be part of this project, please contact us about volunteering or making a donation.
Doc’s Dogs For Vets was formed by the Pleitez family in honor of their son, Spc. Benjamin Pleitez, an army medic who died in 2012 while serving his country in Afghanistan. Ben loved dogs and had a gift for working with them. At the time of his deployment he was in the process of developing a business plan for a dog breeding and training kennel.
“…the best way to honor Ben’s memory is to provide trained service/assistance dogs to veterans who could benefit from a canine companion.”
