Tribute Comfort Dogs was founded in 2015 by a military family to support and encourage all service members, veterans, 1st responders and their families. Challenges are accepted and sacrifices are made in every Hero Family. And it is this loyalty and selflessness that we honor.

Our Comfort Dogs are handled by service members, veterans and their immediate family, who share some of the same life experiences and understand the sacrifices as those we serve.

What is unique about our program, like majority of veteran, military and 1st responder families...our Comfort Dogs are always On The Move. Whether it's training day, visiting a facility or supporting an event, our teams are always on the go.

Our teams have experienced bringing comfort and joy to our Hero Families at memorials, community Yellow Ribbon events, deployment ceremonies, welcome homes, funerals, prayer vigils, Vietnam TAT reunions and Military/1st Responder Memorial Runs, across the great state of Texas.

We have also been involved with other social activities such as Christmas wreath retrievals at the DFW National Cemetery, memorial flag installations and supporting participants of Carry the Load events; and sharing our expertise by assisting with other Pet Partner therapy dog evaluations and therapy dog practicums.  

We our proud to be based out of Caddo Mills, Hunt County, Texas.

We are currently raising funds for a custom 24' hospitality trailer we've dubbed Rover. 


Inspired by a dog's unconditional love and loyalty, our Mission is to enrich the lives of all those who answer the call to serve and their families through the human-animal bond. Our teams travel to various events and facilities, at no charge, to bring comfort & joy, lifting spirits of service members, veterans, 1st responders and their families. Hero Families.


We are currently raising funds for a custom 24' hospitality trailer we've dubbed Rover.

The Rover trailer has been in the RND phase for the last few years and the final design is in. In August of this year we have received a competitive quote for a custom trailer of $45,000.

Purpose of Rover:

Support our Hero Families

Support Like Minded NPOs

Encourage Community Collaboration

Make Outdoor Events Comfortable to Our Dogs to Work in

Our Board of Directors are "all in" for being forerunners, expanding beyond the traditional therapy dog visit concept. Operation Rover creatively leverages resources to meet the needs of the ever-changing military, veteran, 1st responder community. Believing dogs are perfect social facilitators, we respectfully push against dated practices, always striving to provide greater service to those we support. In comes Rover...with all the comforts of home, including a very important furry family member, happy to see them, loving them unconditionally.

We will invite and host our Hero Families at special events that honor them, their service and their sacrifices. At the many outdoor events in North Texas, the Rover unit will be a place for Hero families gather, rest, meet the dogs and socialize with other Hero Families.

Operation Rover will also an excellent means for us to support community collaboration with other Military, Veteran, and 1st Responder Family Service Organizations. Working together we can increase support to our Hero Families.

It also offers the local business community a "vehicle" to volunteer through or a donation-in-kind opportunity supporting events that honor our very special families.

For our dogs, it will be a home away from home. Rover will be a base for our teams work from. It provides familiarity, comfort and inside the trailer, a place to take a break and rest.
