Meet Brandon & Cooper

Cooper is a 3 year old Corgi-Shepherd mix Shelter to Soldier adopted from Baldwin Park Animal Care Center in Los Angeles under the generous Red Star Sponsorship of the Los Angeles Rams, recent Super Bowl Champions! Cooper graduated with his veteran handler, Brandon Shelton, US Army, in August 2020. He even got to be the best man in Brandon’s wedding! This service dog team is thriving together today in Colorado, where Cooper particularly enjoys the snow and paddleboarding (when it’s not snowing) with his Dad, Brandon.

“Well….. STS basically changed my life. Cooper has helped me in all aspects of social comfort. Both at home and at work. He has provided me much needed daily structure and a reason to wake up early every day! STS introduced me to my best friend and partner in crime. I am eternally grateful to Graham and his team” ~  Brandon 


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.
