Webers Pet Supermarket - Community Involvement
Now, dozens of wounded warriors have become involved in training service dogs as a part of the Warrior Canine Connection program at the Healing Quarters located in a historic stone farm house in Brookeville, Md. where Yount and his wife Molly Morelli reside.
THE SERVICE DOGS are bred by Molly Morelli, Warrior Canine Connections dog program director and wife of Rick Yount. Morelli teaches the puppies early commands such as sit and down, and then at 6-8 months instructs them to retrieve and to switch lights on and off. They are taught to do it right, she said.
Molly Morelli is passionate about producing the best possible Labradors and Golden Retrievers to transform the lives of wounded Warriors.
She is the Director of Dog Programs at Warrior Canine Connection (WCC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that enlists combat Veterans in treatment for post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injuries in the therapeutic mission of training service dogs for their fellow Veterans with disabilities. Molly told me a story about a severely injured Veteran who was the sole survivor of a helicopter crash. He had emerged from a coma, but remained bed ridden and was sent to live in a rehabilitation facility for Veterans suffering from traumatic brain injuries. The young man was unable to speak and had significant memory issues. Gradually, he was able to get up and around in a wheelchair and he began smiling at the WCC service dogs in training who work with recovering Warriors at the facility. The connections created between the Warriors and the dogs are life changing - and Molly and the staff at Warrior Canine Connection are grateful to have the opportunity to bring the healing power of dogs to our Nation's wounded Warriors.

"One of the biggest things we find with recovering veterans is isolation and a hesitancy for some of them to leave the barracks at all," said Molly Morelli, director of dog programs at Warrior Canine Connection.
