Heel to Heal was founded in July 2021 by Madison Porter. Heel to Heal was founded on the basis of the founder's passion for helping survivors and animals, as well as her knowledge of the benefits of assistance dogs for survivors of trauma. Madison was volunteering for another nonprofit, but decided to branch off on her own in order to create a business that could support the integrity and ethical standards that she wanted to see in a nonprofit. Madison connected with the current Heel to Heal team and created what this nonprofit is today.
One of our biggest goals is to make sure that those who can benefit most are able to be connected with a trained animal and get the assistance that they need.
