Operation Freedom Paws and PetArmor


What’s Operation Freedom Paws (OFP)?



Operation Freedom Paws



Operation Freedom Paws is a nonprofit organization devoted to changing the lives of people and dogs. Founded in January 2007 by Mary Cortani, a former marine with experience in dog training, Operation Freedom Paws has solved multiple problems with one program. The organization’s mission is to “empower veterans and others with disabilities to restore their own independence.” For veterans who have served our country and are suffering with disabilities, such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD) and Traumatic Brain Injury Symptoms (TBI), OFP provides them with one of the most rewarding gifts. The veterans are paired with a dog, usually from a rescue or shelter, which will soon become their new best friend and helper. These dogs are then trained to help the veterans to function and maintain independence.







How are PetArmor® and Operation Freedom Paws Working Together?

PetArmor® is honored to help provide flea and tick prevention to all rescue dogs that are protecting military veterans through the OFP organization, for free. PetArmor®, believes strongly in the mission and vision of OFP and are thrilled to play a small part in helping in the success of this incredibly worthy organization. In September the people at PetArmor got to experienced Mary’s work first hand and captured an amazing video, which is now LIVE at petarmor.com/operationfreedompaws.
