Valor Medical Service Dogs, 2036 Lake View Ave, Chuluota FL 32766, 321-696-0303
Valor Medical Service Was started by SFC ret. Army Ernie Rivera, after being severely wounded in Iraq Ernie was determined to continue to serve and help curb suicide in fellow veterans suffering from PTSD/TBI. After witnessing the suffering of children in Iraq Ernie wanted to do something to help children, that is why he started the Autism assistance dog program.
He received a service dog and after struggling to get Xander registered with the VA Ernie set out on a mission to set up a Service dog organization that was accredited so other veterans could register their service dogs with the VA. Ernie has spent the last few years attending numerous professional training courses and training hundreds of dogs to prefect his dog training skills.
Valor Medical Service Dogs has become one of the premiere service dog organizations that serve veterans and disabled children, our goal is to provide highly trained medical service dogs to those in need at no cost.
Ernie started Valor K9 Training a pet dog training company to provide financial assistant to Valor Medical service dogs, in 2018 we were able to provide 18 trained service dogs to those in need. Our goal for 2019 is 30 dogs. This is possible by keeping our overhead low and not paying officers and directors’ high salaries. All the management and facility is provided by Ernie this is a huge savings for our organization.
Please consider supporting our mission.
