Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs accepts the 2018 #VETTY Award in the Mental Health Category

On January 20, 2018 our Founder and CEO, Carol Borden and our National Canine Program Director, Nate Burney were in Washington, D.C. at the Mayflower Hotel for the 2018 VETTY Awards, created and hosted by the Academy of United States Veterans.

In the video below, Carol is presented the VETTY for Mental Health by actor, Mike Vogel of NBC’s “The Brave” and Bronze Star Recipient, Matt James.  In announcing the award, the Academy posted: “Recipient (GAMSD) has made a significant difference in the lives of veterans whose wounds can’t be seen. Recipient has provided services/methods to replace feelings of despair with hope”.

We are both honored and humbled to receive this distinguished award. Thanks to our incredible staff, supporters, volunteers and foster family trainers for making each new incredible Service Dog Team possible.

Together, We can Unleash the Power to Heal
