RU DogTags

RU Dog Tags is a partnership between Merlin's Kids and the Office of Veteran and Military Programs and Services at Rutgers University to provide service dogs to student veterans.

An Overview of Merlin's Kids Veteran Service Dog Program:

Merlin's KIDS welcomes the opportunity to reach out and touch the life of veterans who have served our country. We thank you and find it a privilege to perhaps give you a companion who will stand by and assist you for life.

There is no out of pocket cost to a veteran for a service dog. Merlin’s KIDS rescues dogs from shelters, rehabilitates, fosters, raises, trains, and places this dog with the perfect veteran match. We do ask that all of our applicants donate and/or fundraise to help offset the cost of each dog we bring into our program.
