Behesha Doan, founder and chief trainer at Extreme K-9, a world-class dog training facility in Carbondale, Ill., is also the founder of This Able Veteran, a program that pairs specially trained dogs with veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Doan -- herself a trauma survivor -- is motivated to serve veterans in part by her deep compassion for those who have endured traumatic experiences and her understanding of how dogs can help veterans recover by interrupting the cycles of PTSD. The highly successful program combines service dogs trained to pick up on anxiety with an intensive trauma resiliency-training program.

While visiting a dog park in Kentucky, Patty Bateman recognized how a facility in southern Illinois could help bring the community together while providing dogs with much-needed opportunities for socialization and exercise. It took five years of fundraising, but thanks to Bateman's efforts, Murphysboro has the first dog park in southern Illinois. The Friends of Murphysboro Dog Park is located on the west side of Riverside Park in Murphysboro, Illinois.
