You can't do it alone...


Team ONE MILE is partnering up with Semper Fi & America's Fund and two canine charities to help provide our veterans and first responders with the kind of friendship everyone deserves.  The unconditional love of a pet.


Our Mission

Leashes of Valor is a national nonprofit working to provide a highly-trained service dog to every post-9/11 Veteran who needs one to ease the symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) or Military Sexual Trauma (MST), an underlying trauma to PTSD. Our mission is as simple as it is critical: Bring service dogs and post-9/11 Veterans together to enrich the lives of both. Follow-up communication with our Veterans after they leave us continues for life. This level of dedication is how we are setting a new standard for excellence in the world of service dogs.


Our Mission

We are one of America's highest rated charities, and we are dedicated to providing urgently needed resources and support for combat wounded, critically ill and catastrophically injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families.


Our mission is to help ensure the welfare of all German Shepherd Dogs by rehabilitating and placing unwanted and abandoned German Shepherd Dogs from shelters and similar situations into new homes and providing education and guidance to new owners.

Since 2004, we’ve saved approximately 150-175 dogs a year from being put to sleep in shelters, most stray or abandoned by owners.  We take in dogs found in dumping grounds, owner surrenders, shelters and many other bad circumstances from 22 states in the Continental U.S.  We rescue young, old, and medically needy dogs.

White Paws German Shepherd Rescue is a licensed non-profit 501c3 organization founded by a small group of people dedicated to the German Shepherd Dog breed. All monies collected are put toward helping the dogs to find a better life.

We conduct home visits, coordinate training, transport dogs to and from the veterinary office, conduct fund-raisers and bring dogs to select locations so they can meet the public, and the public can meet them to see what a wonderful companion they truly are. We are working to educate the public about the German Shepherd Dog breed and also the importance of spaying/neutering to help keep the pet population under control.

We are one of the few rescues who will take in not only healthy, but sick and disabled dogs too.  We do not discriminate regarding health status or age of the dogs we take in. Many of our rescued dogs have eye disease, stomach issues, hip or knee problems, mange, heartworm, EPIMega-E, and a host of other issues. We do our utmost to treat them all for whatever ailments they suffer from (if any) and will only adopt a dog once it has been medically treated to the best of our veterinarian’s ability. Not all rescued dogs have health ailments.  We receive many dogs that are only in need of a great new family.
