Four Legged Angels was founded by Charles Young,
a retired Law enforcement official. 

Four Legged Angels, is a compassionate and dedicated non-profit organization committed to rescuing puppies primarily from last chance shelters and providing vital support to Veterans and First Responders through the transformative power of service, therapy and comfort dogs.

Another pup passed off to a Veteran. At the end of the day when you see a Veteran that has served our country smile like that, there are no words that can explain how happy it makes us feel. Thank you so much for your service!

Our Veterans and First Responders have demonstrated unwavering courage and commitment in safeguarding our communities and defending our freedoms. However, many of them face unique challenges as they transition to civilian life. Physical injuries, emotional trauma, and mental health issues can create significant hurdles on their path to recovery. That's where Four Legged Angels steps in.


Our organization is on a mission to enhance the lives of these remarkable individuals by pairing them with highly trained Service, Therapy and Comfort dogs at zero cost to them. These incredible canine companions offer not only practical assistance with daily tasks but also serve as a source of unwavering comfort and companionship. The healing bond between our heroes and their Four Legged Angels has a profound impact on their well-being and quality of life.


Veterans and First Responders in the program have to attend in-person training sessions with their dogs to show  that they are responsible pet owners and committed to the program. This gives the opportunity to physically get up in the morning, put shoes on, work a dog and take care of something . They also get to meet other Veterans and First Responders in the program, to know they are not alone. “This gives them a purpose in life.”

Four Legged Angels is a registered 501C3. The organization is run by donations which are tax deductible.

100% of donations go directly contribute to the training, care, and placement of service and therapy dogs with Veterans and First Responders who are in need. By joining hands with Four Legged Angels, you'll be making a lasting impact on the lives of those who have selflessly served our nation.
