VETERANS

Our nation’s selfless veterans are something we take very seriously; and our team works each day to make a positive impact.

 

Numerous Veteran’s programs are in the works.  Job training, education and staffing are ways we intend to support veterans in integrating into life after military.  But some need more. Mental health services, support groups and the like should be readily accessible to every veteran, no matter their situation or location.  

 

No veteran (and their service-animal or pet) in America should ever be homeless or hungry – EVER. Regardless of the need, Wellness Wishes will be the mechanism to convey the gratitude or our country by funding veteran assistance programs, and making a difference in their lives, as they have made in ours.

Veterans Ambassadors

Wellness Wishes is addressing an important cause: veterans, their families and communities.  Our mission of the Veterans Ambassador Program is to integrate veterans into communities to engage public relations, drive engagement, promote awareness and raise funds regarding veterans’ issues; as well as interact personally with veteran’ groups, services and healthcare facilities.

 

What do Veterans Ambassadors Do?

  • Coordinate with Veterans Affairs Directors and Departments at colleges, universities and healthcare facilities

  • Develop and manage various funds for veteran’s assistance (education, skilled training, job placement, healthcare debt relief, housing and necessity assistance, and more)

  • Build and maintain relationships with other veteran’s-focused non-profits

  • Deliver innovative, holistic and alternative therapies to veterans at no cost

  • Working as a pet handler, they’ll bring pet therapy to veterans individually and through support groups and healthcare organizations

Stephan Porter is recently retired from the Army community, but continues to serve his country by working with veterans in many ways and in different places of their careers.  His overall passion and sense of goodwill has already brought innovative insights to our programming, and we're excited to help Stephan assist veteran's efforts. Currently in this role part-time, we’re looking forward to bringing Stephan on full-time in the Veterans Ambassador position, and we're pleased to have him as a founding Veterans Ambassador! 

Rescued Wishes

The objective of our Rescued Wishes program is extremely powerful because it combines not one, but three areas of Wellness Wishes’ impact; and our mission is to save not one, but multiple lives by pairing rescued animals with forever, loving homes, placing them in the homes of veterans and first responder departments.  Through this program, we'll be able to:

  • Save lives by rescuing animals from dangerous environments and situations, including kill shelters

  • Assist in pairing rescued animals in need of forever companions into safe and loving homes of our nation’s great veterans, and in first responder departments across the country

  • Provide a safe sanctuary for animals in temporary need of housing (ex: animals whose companions have been incarcerated, are undergoing recovery treatment, homeless seeking assistance, deployment, etc.)

  • Bring the amazing power of animal companionship and pet therapy to our veterans and first responder communities

  • Cover the cost of pet placement, as well as monthly expenditures for food and supplies
