Tom & Jetta

Tom Hafemann with his 2 year-old Lab mix Jetta whom he and wife Susie adopted from the Greenville Animal Care shelter. Together, he and Susie took Jetta from being a sociable stray to a focused and reliable service buddy.

Tom is a 4 year Navy Veteran and served 2 deployments aboard the Ohio Class Ballistic Missile Submarine USS Nevada as a Sonar Technician 3rd class. Tom achieved a 5% reduction in his symptoms as a result of having Jetta and going through the program.

About his and Jetta's training accomplishments, Tom says: "I know that Jetta and I have prepared well. What's going to help is knowing that Jetta is there for me and that it's okay to not be okay. I can get a little anxious and reserved. But now Jetta senses my stress and gets me out of it by doing one of her 5 trained ADA Tasks, usually on her own without a command. Now it's time to go live; we're ready to go!"

Help give a Veteran the quality of living and future they deserve.
