Giving Back

Saving Two Lives

At the core of what we do is a desire to help others, whether they have four legs or two, wet noses or dry, tails that wag, or no tails at all. While Lavengel® works to heal and restore the skin, we want to lend a hand to those who suffer from trauma that is beyond skin-deep. That's why we've found a perfect partner in Companions for Heroes™ (C4H). Like our gel, C4H works diligently to serve both the dogs we love and the people that we depend on. For every single tube of Lavengel® sold, we gladly give $1 to their fight. We intend to save a lot of lives together.

Companions for Heroes

C4H carries a vision to help every American Hero and save every shelter or rescue animal from euthanasia. C4H obtains dogs from shelters, rescues, and humane societies and trains them to become companion dogs and—on a case-by-case basis—service dogs. These dogs are then provided free-of-charge to active duty military personnel, military veterans, first-responders, military spouses and children, and Gold Star Families recovering from the psychological challenges suffered during service to our country. C4H increases public awareness of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and other challenges confronting our country’s heroes, and they rally support for animal welfare and the adoption of shelter and/or rescue animals.

C4H is a non-clinical and non-facility based organization that places special emphasis on creating mutually beneficial opportunities for shelter and rescue animals—some who might otherwise be euthanized—and our nation’s servicemen and women by accessing the expertise of medical care professionals and animal welfare organizations. C4H is an Animal Assisted Activity (AAA) program that recognizes the incredible power of the human-animal relationship.

C4H is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Saint Simons Island, GA 31522
