ECAD - Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities
Who We Are
One of EDAD's core programs is Project Heal. Its program is designed to meet the needs of Veterans living with physical injuries, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
This program involves specifically educated Service Dogs who help ward off panic attacks, provide a physical barrier in public places, and/or provide mobility and retrieval assistance. There is an application process to receive a Service Dog.
The 'Transitions' program teaches Veterans to educate Service Dogs to be placed with fellow Veterans. Veterans in this program also act as mentors and role models to the at-risk youth, with whom they work side-by-side to educate the dogs.
