Welcome To Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs!
Restoring lives one dog at a time!
There are over 52 million people or approximately 20% of our population in the United States that are mentally and/or physically handicapped and those numbers continue to grow significantly each year. It is estimated that with the Iraq and Afghanistan wars that there is an additional 25% to 30% increase in PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). There are over 11 million people who require assistance with one or more daily activities such as walking, picking up dropped items, answering the phone, etc. Roughly 12 million others require a wheelchair or some other ambulatory equipment such as a cane, walker or crutches. The assistance these disabled people require not only strips them of their individual freedoms and quality of life, but also, often creates an enormous burden on the caregivers and community.
It is our goal, that by combining our business skills and specialized training abilities that we can bring dignity and independence to many of these disabled people through the use of our specially trained service dogs. For that purpose, as of May of 2010, Guardian Angels Medical Service Dogs, Inc., was founded in north central Florida. Though the southern United States has the highest numbers of disabled people, we are prepared to improve the lives of special needs individuals everywhere in the nation.
It is truly incredible when you find out all of the things our medical service dog’s can really do to help people live a more independent life. These very special dogs help to give people back their self-confidence and independence.
