A Phoenix-area charity is looking to pair veterans in need of a service animal and dogs who are looking for a home.
“Project 22 is saving vets and saving dogs and training shelter dogs that we get in here,” the charity’s president, Eric Wolfe, said.
Wolfe, a veteran dog trainer and Air Force veteran, said the idea behind Project 22 is to save lives — both human and canine. He was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and depression.
The project is named after the estimated 22 veterans that take their own lives on a daily bases.
“For me, saving one person and saving one dog, it’s success in my book,” Wolfe said.
