Halley’s K9s for Veterans
I was trying to get information about your program. Do you have flyers or information about we can refer Veterans to your program.
Yes,, we are building new websites as we type,, I sure wish it was done now, but we wanted to get the sites up and running,, we will get it right as we go. We have the usual business, and some very nice hand-outs, can you give us an address or call Pam at 813-503-8861.
I think this is a great thing you are doing.
We have recently have had a shelter dog, here with us did not adopt it ourselves until the girl took off and left it.
It is a Blue Heeler Pointer mixture.
He has had all of his shots, and has been fixed. We have named him Duke.
Sorry to say that Duke will have to go back to the shelter.
He is to big for the owner of the house.
We really don”t want to see that happen.
If you have room for one more he is a good loving dog.
We only want the best for Duke.
If interested you can e-mail me. Or call 941-474-8632.
Good morning Leslie, thank you for thinking about us, but we are currently at full in the kennel, but our operation only uses “working” dogs, mainly Doberman Pinschers, Standard Poodles, Boxers, we have used other breeds but I am kind of partial to the Dobies, I am with my personal Dobie now who is 7 years old and is also my 7th Doberman!
I see your phone number,, are you a rescue in the Bradenton area?
Thank you again
Mike Halley – Trainer
Hi Mike, I love what you guys are doing and I would like to see how I go about applying for a service dog. I currently am 70% disabled Veteran. I also couldn’t find the Facebook page. Can you send the link?

Currently I am trying to find a home for my sister’s dog that she and her husband adopted but have not had time to put into training her. She is a black lab/Shepherd mix. I would keep her if I didnt already have 3 American Staffordshires already. She is 10 months old, Spayed and Chipped per Hillsborough County animal services proceedures for adopting out a dog. If at all possible, please let me know if you are interested.
Thank you for your thinking about us, we are really full at this time and our kennels are full to the brim!!! If you would like to send me pictures and data about the dog,, and contact info, we would be glad to post, maybe that would help.

Hey Chuck,, that is what we do, and we get the best wages in the world,, watching you come alive,, AGAIN. That is something that can NOT be purchased. I really believe that God started me on this mission of helping the veterans, and for tools, he provided me with the talent I have with the dogs. You and Debbie, go to his house when you get home and tell him I said hi and I sent you, REALLY, within your SELF, just let him have you and watch what happens!
He did it for me about 5 years ago.
I believe you and Deb will have a great day Saturday, so RELAX..
Thank you Chuck, you and your wife have been wonderful here, please stay in touch,, and if you meet Joey, tell her your dog is bigger that her dog!!!
Mike n Porsche
Mike, I’ve been “stalking” you since last year. Aside from apologies due to you and Pam (which I am seriously sorry) I am still so very impressed with your techniques!
Would you and Pam be able to meet sometime for coffee? An apology? A chat? and maybe even a proposition…..
I think you know where we are, Call Pam and come over we always listen.
I am really interested in your program, and would like to talk to you about applying. I have a hard time filling out paperwork especially about my past so I might need a little help. Thank for your consideration.
Not a problem Matt, please call Pam at 813-503-8861 and she can help you. I see you are on a 941 area code, are you in Bradenton?
I heard about your effort, and would like to inquire how I can help. I am a volunteer with a dog rescue organization. My husband is in a band that I think is playing for one of your fund raisers today, but he didn’t have enough info. Please contact me
Please contact Pam @ 813-503-8861 Thanks so much, Mike n Porsche
Hey Mike. I am a veteran and am interested in getting a service dog. Please e-mail me so I can discuss my needs further. Thank you in advance.
We can not handle a discussion like this by typing!! Call Pam at 813-503-8861
God bless you!!…We have been searching for a service dog for our son…He is a 100% permenantly disabled veteran with PTSD and other physical issues…Going out in public is a NIGHTMARE!!…and the nightmares he has are horrendous!…All of the meds he is on have helped a bit but his shrink and social worker seems to think that a service dog would make all of the difference in the world for him…We just want to see him to be happy and more independent…If you can help or know of someone else who can, please contact us…Thanks so much!
My phone number is 217-779-6834 or his is 217-506-1332
Hope our conversation has helped, and you talked to Pam.
I am a Marine vet and a boxer breeder in El Paso, Tx. I love your mission and would love to contribute. Do you take puppy donations?
Yes we do and We thank you for the offer, he have 4 puppies in the kennel and IF we took any more in right now, we would have NO DOG for the veteran! Once we can get the 4 pup’s we have placed,, (age is 3 are 7 months and 1 is 5 months) we would love to take a few, can we stay in touch?
Thank you VERY MUCH,
Mike Halley n Porsche
We have one akc boxer pup left. we’ve nick named her sylvia and she’s 17 weeks with all her shots and we’re working on basic commands and house breaking. I was hoping to get her into a veteran k9 program sooner rather than later, do you have an idea of a timeline you’d have an opening? Thanks for your time and your effort!
yes yes, yes, we can handle it now, we JUST placed a few dogs!! Cam you please call Pam at 813-503-8861 tomorrow and work out the details??
Thanks for calling us.
Mike n Porsche
Just called (sorry for delay) left a message.
Hi Mike! I am the friend of a 100 percent disabled veteran with severe PTSD who has been told to obtain a service dog. However no one at the VA could tell her how to do that. I began researching your site and believe that you would be a perfect fit for her. How do we go about the process of getting her a service dog? Any help would be greatly appreciated. My phone number is 2222222. We live in western Pa. Thank you…Jaye
Jaye, the boss, Pam should call you very soon, I dumped your phone off the post to keep you private.
I am 100% with the va and feel as though a service dog could help me I have had a stroke and just recently diagnosed PTSD. Please contact me so I can see if I qualify for your program.
Hi Amy, I am sending your phone number to the BOSS, my wife Pam,, you could call her direct, 813-503-8861 our “charter” is set up for 70% or higher will qualify for our program, call Pam and get all the straight info.. 813-503-8861
Sorry I forgot my phone number 386-blanked by host.
It is way to hard for me to be perfect,, so, “forgetting” things is NO PROBLEM around here!
I just tried to call you, got voice mail.
Sorry I didn’t recognize the number but I got your stores now.
Amy, I remove YOUR phone number as I do not believe anyone should have it unless you give it to a particular person. We have it now and you can call Pam, or I think she has called you already.
Mike n Porsche
Never got the application in email assuming that is the way its being delivered.
I am sorry, I will check as soon as the “boss” wakes up @ 0800 or you can call Pam at 813-503-8861 just in case.
Amy, when I removed your phone # to keep you private, I have spent an hour looking for it, just to make sure I can get you a packet, please e-mail me @ email@example.com and give me your address and phone number again, it appears I must be slipping in my old age I am so sorry, I will get Pam on it fast, or call me at 727-692-7101 at any time.

My name is Brian Griggers and I am extremely interested in applying to receive one of your dogs. I am currently in residential treatment for PTSD. I am getting medically retired from the army. I have spoke with several of my doctors and they fell this would be no less than perfect for me. I was needing some paperwork and requirements I would need to present, also if I would need to get recommendations from command and docs.

Hi Mike I’m baaaaaaaaaack ! Your gunner on EM19 I have started your viking warship. No. 3 is in the local library in its viking display case. I will send a pix as soon as I learn how. Later buddy
I am so relieved Art, I thought you had climbed one of them BIG TREES!! Jot down my e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org but the faster one is this —> email@example.com Do you remember George Arnold?? He told me a story about me getting grabbed by “charlie” on top of Monkey Mountain,, do you know anything about that?
The boat sounds great and I would treasure it,, all my friends have seen the photos, they will drool over the real deal,, I can NOT WAIT!!
Mike n Porsche
PS you have the phone call anytime.
Hey Mike go to my facebook pg arthur larason and I have pictures there.
Im sure the email thing is a simple setting. The outlook express is not connecting to the server. I have a friend who probably can tell me what is wrong.
I will keep working on the facebook thing
Art, I trashed Outlook a few years ago, I downloaded Chrome from Google, there is a learning curve but I could help you get over the humps, did I mention that you get “Gmail” free with Chrome a nice e-mail client. and it handles pictures, documents, and you can connect to a system of a friend.. and I would be able to help you, but NO MORE Outlook for me !
Look at this website, from the shot of EM-19 flying over the South China sea, (you might be in the gunner seat there!!” I am having to learn WordPress which I am doing and you can look at the numbers we have over 3 MILLION people that have visited us!! So, all I am saying is,, if ya stick with outlook it cost $$$ and I can not help you,, grab Chrome you can have BOTH on your system and try it out..
I just went over to your FaceBook page, nothing on it Art…
Hey Art, welcome aboard.. I am glad to see you,
Hi Mike, I’m sitting here admiring your viking ship and I just posted more pictures on fccebook of my progress. This boat is going togeather much easier and better than the previous ones. You may have this sooner than I figured. I dont want to get too deep into this computer stuff too much other work to do. I have a friend who will tell me what I have to do to get my maik out of the outbox. It’s funny that this goes through ok but not my pictures from the file. Any I just signed up with a yahoo group about the vikings I’ll be writing to them about my viking ships next. Damn this boat is going to be cool !
I can hardly wait to see it, I have not been on FaceBook as yet, I just came in to eat my breakfast, I just got done feeding all the dogs, 15 of them today!!
I will get on FB but I sure wish you would load Chrome,, it makes it so simple, e-.mail pictures ya GOTTA get it. You are having all kinds of problems on the Outlook and you will need to pay for it,, not cheap, I ran it in the old days, then purchased 2005,, and they had changed way to much,, I and got to many problems, so switched to the Chrom and what a glad person I am now, As I remember a long time ago,, but I took you on as a gunner, I must have told you something as your still here… TRY CHROME.
Art,, I just went to your pages, there is NOTHING there!!
Time is 0748 2-15-2013
Hi Mike, I have just recieved a recommendation for a service dog from my doctor at the va, and saw that you train boxers as well as dobies. I live in Melbourne Florida and am interested in your program. I will be calling pam on Monday as im sure she takes Sunday to herself, but wanted to say hello to you and thank you for the amazing service you provide. Keep it up brother, you came highly recommend from vetsadoptpets by the way.
Great,, we hope to see you soon..
Hey Zollie, glad to meet ya,,, first I gotta burst your bubble, all the dogs in the kennel will have a fair chance to PICK YOU,, we do NOT pick the dog for you, nor do you get to pick the dog,,, he he he, now, I do have a Boxer, Lola but she is placed the man has all of his paperwork, has been picked by the dog,, he just needs the doc’s letter and the doctor is on vacation, WHO GAVE him permission to go now of all time, but the Boxer is gone.
Now,, we have a list of good dogs, most are big, (for stability issues) but they double at licking your face, or being a 60 to 70 lb lap dog!! but they all are good, did I mention I like Doberman Pinschers?? Their DNA is perfect as a working dog, and that is what we work to get, we also have some German Shepherds Bronx, and Kayla, and one more, I think it is Kylie,, matters none you WILL get a great dog,, trust me. Go to our face book pages and check them out.
The face Book link is up high on this page.
Pam is waiting for your call tomorrow.
I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought
this post was great. I don’t know who you are but certainly you’re going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!
Thanks, Quite busy around here
Hi, I am a veteran with PTSD looking around for a therapy dog. Can I please get some information about your program and how to apply?
I would greatly appreciate the help!
Amanda, First, we do NOT do therapy dogs, we do Service Dogs. Second, you need to call Pam at 813-503-8861 and she will tell you all about it.
Thanks for asking PTSD is our specialty Mike n Porsche
Highly descriptive post, I loved that bit. Will there be a part 2?
I really have no idea at this time.. But it will get bigger!
Extremely enjoyable and a brilliant read, I can tell you
have a keen interest unlike a lot of other blog pages I encounter.
Many thanks for the fine words, I really do NOT know how to type BLOG,, what I write is just what happened.
You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org but Roxie in the subject line
You guys are doing a great a job. I stumbled upon your site while googling for K-9’s for vets. I’m helping my friend find a service dog. However, we’re up here in Canada, and dogs are very hard to come by. One trainer has a 42 person wait list. Do you have any contacts up this way?
Keep up the great work.
Thank you,, and just by chance I do have a very good friend up there, I also just had a Doberman Pinscher transported up there!!
I will ask my friend “Dom” just where he lives..
I’m in Sarasota and would like to help with the dogs
How can I contact you as I can’t seem to find this info
My number is 727-692-7101, there is not a lot to do until the 21st when two clients come in..
Coco is beautiful. I am looking for a SD for PTSD. I am a 100% SC war vet with MST. Where should I start?
E-mail me @ email@example.com send me who and where you are, why you need a SD, what will the dog do for you etc, enclose your contact info and Mike will call you.
Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website?
I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
I am using WordPress and I do not have problems!! Sorry.
I don’t even know how I finished up here, but I thought this post was good. I don’t know
who you’re however definitely you are going to a well-known blogger should you are not already. Cheers!
My husband was retired from the Army after 19 years with PTSD and his mental health nurse feels he is in need of a service dog because going out in public can be troublesome for him. I would like to have more information about your service. We have not eaten in a resturant during normal hours since his last tour in Iraq.
Check out the e-mail I sent to you.
Hey I live in Ocala and was wondering how I could help in the training of these animals. Do you only train in your area? I have trained 2 service animals in the past for the Guide Dog Foundation and was looking to start again when I came across an article about an Assistant principle wasn’t allowed to bring her service dog to work at the school. Saw your response and thought I would maybe like to switch and do something for the men and women who serve our country. We don’t have a lot of money but we do love to invest our time in helping others. Thanks for considering!
Hi! I was hoping for some some more info on how we would go about getting my husband a service dog. He is former army and has some issues. I will be able to give you more details if needed in an email. Someone at the VA recommended that we look into getting him a service dog. Any info you can give would be very much appreciated.
To get a dog from us you need to be 70% or higher by the VA, that starts it off. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I was online looking to see if my husband would qualify for a service dog. He is still in the Army but I want to get ahead of the game cause he gets out in a year. But he has Insomnia, moderate-severe Anxiety, memory loss, clumsy, and a bunch of other physical issues. Can you please email me back at email@example.com to if he qualifies or if not if you have any other suggestions
Hi Janelle, I am e-mailing this to you as I do not want people knowing your business, Our 501(c)3 is set up for a 70% service connection the dog is free, the 2 week stay with us is free, you have to pay your own transportation to and back home and you pay for what you eat,, and figure about $30.00 a day for 2 meals per day.. If you need anything more please call me at 727-692-7101 and I will try to help you.
Steve please call Maria at 813-503-8861 and she will fill you in.
Hi Jack, thank you for the comments and stop in any time. You might want to go to the site and the 5th line down on HOME page there is a link to our face book site, come on and meet the crew.
Thanks for the kudos, but i have a hard tine doing what I already do, and then take care of the website!!

blessing to have him in our family.
Thank you for ALL you do. Keep up the good work!
Hi Amy, to hear that my dogs are doing what they are trained to do and veterans are able to get over “PTSD” so that they can have a good life,, makes me,,, feel great.
Find veterans in your area that need a SD and send them on my phone number, (that speed dial on YOUR phone!) and I will take it from there.
It is nice to see your site up and running again. Good to hear from you and know you will be continuing your work to help us fellow Veterans. Keep up the wonderful work you do and if I have any leads for you, I will let you know immediately!!!!
Yes we are back in getting rescue dogs and giving them a new life with a new life with a Veteran, now if I KNEW HOW to keep up with the comments,,, did I mention I an not good with this WordPress, GGggrrrr
Looking forward seeing you and your SD.
Great hearing you,,I have had a lot of getting the hang with Word Press, but NOW I hope I have it. Now we can get to work on getting some dogs and get to work.. Drop in some time..
Things have been going crazy right now I have a Hazmat training if all works good, and some one coming over tonight for a BIG Doberman we shall see. The compound over in St Pete was way too much, so I took it down, not my brain is working to come up will some ideas. We never met do you ever come uo here?? Bay Pines???
I am happy to hear that you are going to be doing more training. You (and Ben) really turned my life around. Semper Fi!
It looks like the first 3 dogs will be in place in St. Petersburg by the end of next week. Looking forward to getting things going again. Talked to 2 people who are interested in getting dogs and they thought the price is reasonable. Rich and Mike will be doing the training and I will be handling the administrative part.
Yep all is going good so far
Looks like you are ON the inside!!
Barbara, I met you briefly when I called to see Mike on an old trike. Irish bloke who owned an RV that was stored in Tampa ? Tell Mike to fiend me on his facebook page and I will bring him up to speed. Be heading over to Florida on Oct 2nd
