Ms. Swendon is currently working on a program for therapy dog ambassador for, Train a Dog-Save a Warrior (TADSAW) at tadsaw.org . These would be therapy dogs, PTSD Support Dogs that go out into the community and promote the Service Dog Program by actually demonstrating what a Service Dog can do for a warrior surviving with PTSD, TBI, & MST.

In 1987 she founded the first chapter in Texas of the Delta Society, now Pet Partners. She had the first certified therapy dog in South Texas. Since then she has been active in television for 20 years, written 52 cookbooks and now a series of books entitled “POCKETS OF PEACE”. Each book in this series is inspirational and motivational in content to be distributed free of charge to those struggling to heal, to wounded warriors, to warriors deployed and deploying as well as the fourth in the series, “K9's − Therapy for PTSD, TBI and MST. This book features photographs of warriors with their service dogs and shows the depth and intensity of the bond between the two.

In 2006 Ms. Swendson founded the Penny's from Heaven Foundation, Inc. with the primary focus being therapy dogs for those struggling to heal from a myriad of afflictions. Because of the location of San Antonio and the vast number of military and military hospitals the primary focus became working with our wounded warriors with PTSD and TBI. The program split into two separate foundations only recently one focusing on therapy dogs and the other solely providing service dogs to our wounded warriors in need of help.
