The Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet© Warriors’ Angels-TX© (WA-TX) Program was developed to support service members and veterans having been medically diagnosed with PTSD, TBI, or MST) and official recommendation from their Primary Care Manager (PCM) to us has been received that an “Assistance Service Dog” (ACD) will help improve the service member/veteran’s quality of life.
Note: Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet is in the process of pursuing membership in the ASDPMV coalition, which we hope to submit the required application by 15 March 2020.
Our goal is to implement WA-TX in Central TX (in and around Fort Hood area) as of 1 April 2020 and to eventually expand the program to the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Southwest TX (El Paso area) plus evaluating the need for the program in the Northwest TX area, Southeast TX area, and Northeast TX area.
The program includes but not limited to qualifying potential service member/veteran applicants, determining potential ASD candidates via a specific evaluation process, arranging for specific “Team” (specific Handler and ASD candidate), program certification, and on-going WA Team follow up until such time as the ASD can no longer perform the functions it was trained to do or the Team has officially been dropped from the program.
The program is being redeveloped in accordance with the AKC, and ASDPMV organizations involved with defining and developing standards and recommended certification criteria for these Teams (service member or veteran and a specific Assistance Service Dog) from a privately trained perspective.
All applicants will be considered regardless of race, sex, religion, creed, sexual orientation, and ethnic origin.
