Dog Tales: Meet Henry & Penny

Dog Tales: Meet Henry & Penny

Henry Cordero, a US Army Veteran, and Penny completed our Emotional Support Animal (ESA) program on January 15, 2020.

Penny was originally rescued by a Good Samaritan on the side of the freeway in Riverside, CA. She was taken in by a foster, who connected with our program to find Penny a greater purpose than the life she lived as a stray. She is a joyful and energetic girl who loves to train. We’re so thankful her journey aligned with Henry’s and the two are now together, thriving.

This partnership would not have been possible without the generous support of Penny’s sponsors, Jack and Nanci Simkin who sponsored her care, training, and placement with Henry. Henry recently shared,  “I retired from the Army officially 28 February of this year and moved back to Chaparral NM. Which is my home of record. Penny and I moved back out there to be with my wife and son and we are adjusting just fine.

Penny is getting is getting use to the warmer weather and she is adjusting to having a huge backyard as opposed to living in an apartment.

I started working for the DOD in White Sands Missile Range in May and am adjusting to the civilian side of the fence while still working for our great nations Army.

I want to thank you for my Penny who has made my life a joy since day one. Y’all are truly saving lives two at a time. God bless you always.”


Every dollar helps us fulfill our mission of saving lives, two at a time™

Supporting our mission allows us to rescue more dogs for our program, and provides the funding we need to support all of their needs from medical care to safe housing over the course of their 12-18 month training program and subsequent training with their veteran handler.
