Operation Dog Tag

Dedicated to all men and women who served in combat and their families who love them. Operation Dog Tag wishes to educate the community of their purpose and asks for help in aiding the returning veterans along with the ones that are already struggling at home.

And we veterans thank you as we continue “Making Man’s Best Friend Even Better For A Veteran”­­­ - Joe Scheffer, Director

My name is Frank Lopez, me and my dog Guero have been a part of Operation Dog Tag with Joe Shaffer for the last 6 months. Since attending his classes, I now posses the skills to teach my service dog the specific commands to help me with my everyday activities. With Joe’s guidance, my service dog is not only able to be in restaurants but he also makes sure to stay out of the way of the staff. My dog is my best friend and it means the world to me to be able to take him wherever I go. Thank you Operation Dog Tag and Joe Shaffer.

Operation Dog Tag is a non-profit organization dedicated to training dogs for combat Veterans. Then in turn, training those Vets to train other dogs for other Vets. Having a dog has been proven to help with rehabilitation & many Veterans in our area are in desperate need. The Veterans are given these dogs at no cost.
So please help us help our Veterans by donating to: Pointman Int’l Ministries (DBA Operation Dog Tag),
