Proudly Supporting Pups4PatriotsTM

We’ve partnered with American Humane to change lives at both ends of the leash.

Over the next several years, we have pledged almost $1 million to help dogs find homes and veterans find healing.

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 act as service pets for veterans with post-traumatic stress (PTS) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Many brave members of the U.S. Armed Forces face another daunting battle when they return to civilian life. Psychological wounds, 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 increasingly revealed that with special training, dogs have the ability to lower stress, anxiety levels and feelings of depression, aid social reintegration, and give veterans much-needed comfort and confidence.

But there are still challenges that limit how many veterans get paired with service dogs. There are lengthy waiting lists, and the costs of intensive training can reach as high as $30,000.

With Our Commitment, we have helped find Homes for 31 Dogs.

“At Coleman, we take our ability to help those who defend us and our freedom in a personal way,” said Mel Coleman, 5th Generation Family Member Coleman All Natural Meats. “We are honored to support American Humane’s Pups4Patriots program to help train and provide service dogs to the men and women who valiantly serve our country. Since 2019, we have been able to help support the training of more than 31 service dog teams and look forward to helping many more successful pairings.”

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.

You can support this effort with every purchase of a Coleman product.

The Pups4Patriots™ logo is proudly printed on each of our product labels.
