Ranger Service Dog Training

Ken Cappello saw a need. He saw his military brothers and sisters suffering with PTSD and other post war disabilities. At the same time, large numbers of dogs were being euthanized each year in our local shelters. 

The idea? To save loyal, capable dogs from the shelters and train them to provide companionship and perform necessary tasks for our local heroes. Ranger Service Dog Training was born.

Donations are necessary to provide the dogs with veterinary care, equipment, training, and more. At the same time, we welcome volunteers in all areas, from foster care to fundraising. Ultimately, our goal is to build a complete training campus.
