About Continuing the Mission
Established in March of 2016, Continuing the Mission (CTM) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing fully trained Assistance Dogs at no cost to qualifying Veterans. We have established a birth-to-placement model that immerses our dogs in continuous social and functional activities starting at 8-10 weeks of age.
Our immersion model ensures that our dogs are continuously in a social setting, being exposed to as many different aspects of life as possible. We also look for opportunities for our dogs to give back throughout their two-year training period by participating in numerous events that support CTM Veterans and the larger Veteran community in North Carolina.
Continuing the Mission is operated by a team of dedicated volunteers who make our partnership with a purpose successful.

About the photographer
Emiko Mizumoto of Studio Emiko Photography in Fort Mill, SC was named a Bronze Medalist during the Professional Photographers of Americans 2021 International Photographic Competition.
