About

When a veteran has a need, often services are far from home. Removing the barriers to care, we provide free transportation on the ground and in the air for veterans in need of service dogs or specialized medical care.

Real Life

Angel Canines and Wounded Warriors (aka Mercy Medical Angels) removes barriers to care by providing FREE transportation nationally and internationally to veterans, children and cancer patients in need of medical care, service dogs or adaptive sports. All over the world, we link veterans, children and cancer patients to life-saving treatment and services. Kenneth served in Operation Desert Shield and was honorably discharged in 1991. He made it home, but his experiences caused him to develop depression and PTS. That's when Angel Canines and Wounded Warriors (aka Mercy Medical Angels) came in flying Kenneth to Texas so he could obtain a service dog. When Kenneth talks about how he was helped, his voice fills with relief. Helping him obtain a service dog "changed my life completely. With Paisley, I'm able to go to work and be around other people." Angel Canines and Wounded Warriors (aka Mercy Medical Angels) is changing the lives of those who serve." Marlin was diagnosed with bile duct liver cancer. Specialist at MD Anderson could help him, but the renowned cancer center was more than 700 miles away from home. Thanks to your generosity, Marlin made the round trip to receive his life-saving treatments. "You were a tremendous help in making my flight to MD Anderson possible," said Marlin. "I have a special needs daughter in treatment at Baylor University in Houston. I could not get her there if it were not for Mercy Medical Angels."
