Operation Freedom Paws: Empowerment and hope

Dogs have a certain healing power that is difficult to ignore. Their knack for unconditional love and capabilities as service animals go a long way. Operation Freedom Paws founder Mary Cortani understood that when she founded the California-based non-profit in January 2010. “Operation Freedom Paws empowers veterans and others with disabilities to live a quality of life by teaching them to train their own dogs, and certifying them as service dog teams,” the organization states on its website.306713_366698276754817_1504454184_n

Operation Freedom Paws carefully evaluates the dogs – usually rescue animals – and matches them with individuals who have Post Traumatic Stress and other “physical, neurological, psychological or mobility needs.” “The very special therapeutic canine-human relationship helps them get back out in their communities and begin to view their future with renewed hope.”
