We've partnered with American Humane to change lives at both ends of the leash.
Pups4Patriots™ is a program committed to putting more leashes into the hands of more veterans in need. The program rescues qualified dogs in need of forever homes and trains them to be service pets for veterans with post-traumatic stress (PTS) and traumatic brain injury (TBI). In addition, grants are awarded to veterans requiring financial assistance to obtain and care for a service dog, and American Humane provides them with insights and institutional support as they navigate the application process.
Many brave members of the U.S. armed forces face another daunting battle when they return to life as a civilian. Wounds that are more psychological than physical, including PTS, can cause depression and social isolation, which leads to suicide far too often.
American Humane is dedicated to helping veterans heal through the power of the human-animal bond. Scientific research has revealed more and more that with special training, dogs have the ability to lower stress, anxiety levels and feelings of depression while aiding with social reintegration and giving affected veterans much-needed comfort and confidence.
Coleman Natural Foods is pledging $800,000 to Pups4Patriots™ over the span of three years. During our commitment, we’ll be able to find homes for up to 25 dogs.
You can support this effort with every purchase of a COLEMAN NATURAL® product. The Pups4Patriots™ logo is proudly printed on each of our product labels.
At Coleman, we take our ability to help those who defend us and our freedom in a personal way. We have more than a dozen veterans employed at our company and many more among our friends and family. We like to dream big when veterans are in need and turn that dream into reality. We are proud to make this contribution.
