The Arkansas CW launches new web series Service Dogs of Distinction.

Over the next year this series will be following the "Service Dogs of Distinction" which is a local program that is helping veterans by bringing hope for a better life.  This organization is unique at finding and matching rescue dogs from shelters with veterans who suffer from PTSD and TBI and providing months of training so they can become a team. 

"Service Dogs of Distinction" is a non-profit organization with the goal of providing quality service dogs to veterans.  We spoke with co-founder, client coordinator and trainer Marsha Wyatt about their program.



Marsha Wyatt has spent a lifetime involved with animals.  She majored in Animal Science and Veterinary Technician.  She began as a cruelty investigator and culminating as executive director.  She spent more than 15 years working with two different humane societies.  And she uses her years of experience to identifying and train dogs from local humane societies and shelters to help veterans.  

Twenty-two veterans a day commit suicide.  These men and women feel alone, misunderstood and devalued as human beings.  In many local cases, Service Dogs of Distinction is a veteran's last resort because Department of Veteran's Affairs does not provide nor reimburse veterans for service dogs. 


If you are a veteran or know a veteran suffering from PTSD, TBI or related illness and are in need of a service dog or would like to make a donation or get involved please contact them at:
