ABOUT OPERATION AT EASE:
Operation At Ease (a 501(c) (3) organization) works with several different shelters and rescues throughout the United States pairing unwanted dogs with disabled veterans, at no cost to the service member. OAE then provides a free guided training program for the purposes of PTSD and light mobility service dogs. Veterans attend small group classes with their canine, in order to gain the skills necessary to pass a number of obedience titles offered through the American Kennel Club, as well as receive training for specific needs, such as crowd buffering and brace support. The volunteers at OAE also accompany the veteran-canine team into the public to apply the classroom training to real-life situations. After passing the Public Access test, the veterans are legally allowed to bring their dog anywhere they go in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Since our first fall event in 2014, CrossFit Shatter has raised over $20,000 for Barbells for Boobs! There is more work to do to provide men and women with the Right To Know, so our job isn’t done! Join us every fall to raise money for breast cancer detection!
