Support Our PAWS22 Initiative

Here at Operation Overwatch, we’re proud to run the PAWS22 initiative, which works to pair veterans and first responders with rescued dogs looking for good homes. Our goal is to greatly improve the lives of people struggling with daily trauma, as well as the lives of dogs that have been abandoned. With the help of your donation, we can improve the lives of those who suffer by connecting them with a faithful companion.

Why PAWS22?

Every day, 22 veterans take their own lives. Every day, thousands of dogs are euthanized due to overcrowding in shelters.

PAWS22 is Operation Overwatch’s initiative to locate, procure, and place rescue dogs with veterans and first responders that suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injuries (TBI), military sexual trauma, and mobility issues. As the program develops, we seek to rescue more dogs, expand our kennel facilities, and bring on additional dog trainers.

Where Your Money Goes

Your donations help us work toward the goal of making these leaps forward, all while providing service dogs at no cost to the handler. For just $22 a month, you’re helping us:

  • provide life-changing support for brave men and women
  • cover administrative costs
  • rescue as many of these dogs as possible
  • provide essential training
  • provide food and medical coverage for all dogs
Please act now and see why our motto is “Healing at Both Ends of the Leash.”
The only way to sum it all up is that Operation Overwatch, Brice, Christy, and Shadow have improved my quality of life! I would not be where I am today with out them and still work with them to improve my team work with Shadow.
