We at Healing Paws For Heroes have been keeping a lid on something that has been going on for a few months but we are tired of being bullied and harassed
We are being threatened by another group that trains Service Dogs for Veterans South of Atlanta named Healing 4 Heroes.
They say we are infringing on their trademarked name HEALING4HEROES however after speaking with the IRS, Counsel, and the Secretary of State, they are all in the same mind that we are not infringing and at least two told me to blast this on social media.
Healing 4 Heroes wants us to do the following things: (our responses are after each)
1. Cease using "4" immediately before or after healing or heroes- We cannot cease using "4" as We DO NOT use "4" in anything however I hold the EIN for Healing Paws 4 Heroes...
2. Cease using Healing Paws For Heroes except as our formal legal name which would require changing our web address as well - NO we will not Change our name.
3. Put a banner on the home page of OUR web page directing OUR clients to them. - NO we will not put a Healing4Heroes banner on our website.
This is the second law office they have used against us. We are a small Mom and Pop organization that works from our own home. We train 1-3 dogs at a time. We don't have huge corporate donors. We don't have staff, we have 3 people all the time and 2 volunteers sometimes. We have placed maybe 50 dogs total since we started.
Since apparently they are stalking our pages they should see this. Please share far and wide, WE DESPERATELY NEED A LAWYER that is willing to help full time. We want everyone to know what this group is doing out of jealousy or spite.
We should be walking hand in hand to Help Veterans Not standing fist to fist!

Many men and women who defend our country return with memories that are debilitating. Statistics show that an average of 22 soldiers die from suicide daily. That is simply heartbreaking. Most of us couldn't imagine, wouldn't want to imagine, the horrors they survived while defending our freedoms. Suffering from physical and emotional wounds, our Country's heroes need our help.
Several years ago it came to our attention that Veterans needing Service Dogs were being placed on waiting lists for over 7 years. They were also having to pay thousands of dollars for their dog. This is outrageous! We do not charge our Veterans for their Service Dogs.
Everyday, in animal controls all across the country thousands of dogs through no fault of their own are euthanized. We aim to rescue these dogs and give them a purpose...to rescue a soldier. We rehabilitate and teach them basic obedience as well as whatever tasks are necessary to help our Wounded Warriors. Thus saving Two lives at once!
Our mission is simple: to provide Veterans with the Independence they lost while defending our freedoms. Our Service Dogs are Free of charge. It is the least we can do... to provide Healing Paws to our Heroes.
