Proud of East Texas: Patriot Paws

EAST TEXAS (KLTV) - Kathleen McCullough has raised and trained fourteen dogs for "Patriot Paws."

The organization provides service dogs for veterans with physical and/or mental needs. The dogs are trained to pick up, fetch, deliver and even push panic buttons connected to 911 when there is a emergency.

McCullough admits she gets close to the dogs she trains, but is proud that that they can "fulfill their destiny" with service men and women and often even save lives.

At the present, there are 122 veterans on the waiting list for Patriot Paws dogs.
