OPP is a licensed, section 501(c)(3) not for profit organization, established and incorporated in November 2018. We are a volunteer based organization. Our team is comprised of Veterans, mental health professionals, veterinarians, trainers, fosters, transporters, animal advocates, and many more.
Majority of our Emotional Support Animals (ESAs) come from high-kill shelters. Instead of a life of abandonment or euthanasia, they are given a new purpose. With each pair, we save two lives; we rescue the animal, and the animal rescues the Veteran. Every foster animal is in a foster home. They live with families, kids and other companion animals while they are decompressing from shelter life and as they are going through training. Most of our ESAs are graduates from the Canine Good Citizen program.
OPP is 100% donation funded. Every dollar is put back into the organization to save lives.
