Meet Peter & Kobe

Kobe was adopted in February 2021 from the San Diego Department of Animal Services in Carlsbad under the generous Red Star Sponsorship of Boeing. He is a goofy, playful guy who loves cuddling and training with his dad.

In January 2022 he officially became the psychiatric service dog for USMC Veteran, Peter Nolan. This team shares a special bond, and Kobe provides the support Peter needs and deserves to live life to the fullest.

Peter, who works as a substitute teacher, says of Kobe “Kobe has a reputation across the Vista Unified School District and they love him. I’m so grateful for Shelter to Soldier.”


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.
