There there is a new local group training dogs for veterans with disabilities. Similar to the mission of Paws4Vets, this group is in our town helping local veterans. It is Eyes, Ears, Nose and Paws (EENP). They were those sharp looking dogs in the Chapel Hill Christmas Parade.
American Legion Post 6 is working with them to find ways to support their efforts. Their group is only three years old and serves Chapel Hill, Carrboro, and the surrounding area. EENP trains and places assistance dogs.
John Stephens, Board Chair for EENP, states, “Our programs create a healthier community by increasing independence for individuals with disabling medical conditions, improving opportunities for individual control over medical care, and encouraging therapeutic interventions that improve physical and mental health.” Learn more
How can you help? The post will need someone to work with the American Legion and EENP as we explore ways we can assist them in them through fundraising, post events, and community outreach. Sound like you? Contact our Veterans Service Officer
