Hosted by Dale Throneberry

Leashes Of Valor

Leashes of Valor Launched in 2017

Retired Marine Capt. Jason Haag is the founder and CEO of Leashes of Valor, a national nonprofit that provides service dogs at no cost to wounded and disabled veterans. Haag served three combat deployments during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, where he was wounded. The VA ultimately diagnosed Jason with post-traumatic stress and multiple traumatic brain injuries, but no treatment options worked for very long. It wasn’t until he met his own service dog, Axel, in 2012, that he began to get better. The German shepherd saved his life, and inspired Jason to found his own service dog nonprofit in 2017.

The best way to get in touch is by visiting our website www.leashesofvalor.org or emailing us at info@leashesofvalor.org. Veterans interested in learning more about getting a service dog can email warrior@leashesofvalor.org to reach our warrior coordinator.
