While some people still associate "Lassie" or "Rin Tin Tin" as the classic canine heroes, today, more people associate dogs with rescue and health related assistance work. While dramatic films like, "Megan Leavy" celebrate life saving work of military dogs on the battlefield, many more service dogs are helping veterans when they transition to civilian life. These dogs help in a variety of ways. They not only serve vets as companions in aiding them fighting depression, isolation, and loneliness to providing disabled vets with mobility and physical assistance.
A number of countries have celebrated their canine heroes on stamps. They have featured their work with police, military, and medical teams.
County Stamp is proud to be a supporter of Patriot Paws Service Dogs (patriotpaws.org) a great organization providing service dogs to our veterans for lasting partnerships.
