The Journey Begins with an Extraordinary Tale of Mutual Rescue

Embarking on this remarkable journey, rescue dogs undergo a transformative process to become highly-trained service dogs for veterans facing the challenges of PTSD, traumatic brain injury (TBI), and military sexual trauma (MST). This life-changing endeavor is made possible through the support of our generous donors, who play a vital role in turning this vision into reality.

Picture this:

A brave veteran battling the challenges of life after service bearing the invisible wounds of war discovers a companion in a rescue dog—both on a quest for healing and purpose.

Your Commitment Serves as the Catalyst for this Heartwarming Partnership

With each act of support, you’re actively participating in a critical rescue mission that intertwines the destinies of veterans and their loyal canine counterparts. Through your unwavering dedication, you’re scripting stories of resilience, courage, and the powerful bond that emerges when two souls embark on a journey of mutual rescue, hope, and healing.

Service Dogs Are Superheros in the Lives of Veterans Dealing with Trauma

PTSD and it’s Effects on Veterans

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is a real and challenging condition that many of our veterans face after their military service. From flashbacks to hypervigilance, the battle inside their own minds never ends.

Our vets go through a lot; sometimes, the invisible wounds can be the hardest to heal. Now imagine veterans with invisible wounds compounded by physical wounds. The power of service dogs steps in, offering a unique kind of support that goes beyond what human words can provide.

Training Tailored for Trauma Assistance

These service dogs aren’t just regular pups with a fancy title—they’re highly trained professionals who detect changes in their handler’s mood, nudging them with a paw or a comforting nuzzle when they sense anxiety or distress.

The Unbreakable Bond

The bonds forged between our veterans and their PTSD service dogs transcend mere assistance; they embody a profound friendship, trust, and a connection that defies verbal expression.

Breaking Down Barriers and Overcoming Stigma

It’s Time to Set the Record Straight!

Despite the incredible benefits, there’s still quite a bit of a stigma around service dogs for mental health. Some people might raise an eyebrow when they see a veteran with a dog by their side. These dogs are more than companions; they’re skilled professionals providing essential support.

Your loyal support helps spread the word and break down barriers. These dogs are changing and saving lives, and it’s important that society begins to recognize their importance in the landscape of mental health.

You Make A Real Difference

Training Program

Monthly donations contribute to the funding of equipment and supplies for our 24-week specialized training program for veterans and service dogs. This program is designed to teach rescue dogs the unique skills needed to assist veterans with PTSD, such as recognizing signs of distress, providing comfort during anxiety episodes, and even waking them up from nightmares. Your financial support ensures that these programs are comprehensive and tailored to meet the individual needs of each veteran.

Veteran-Canine Matching

Matching the right dog with the right veteran is a crucial step in the process. Monthly gifts help cover the costs associated with evaluating the needs of veterans and carefully selecting and matching them with suitable rescue dogs. This personalized approach increases the effectiveness of the service dog in providing the specific support required for each individual.

Veterinary Care and Maintenance

Service dogs, like any other dog, require regular veterinary care, food, and supplies. Monthly contributions help cover the costs of routine check-ups, vaccinations, and any unexpected medical expenses that may arise. This ensures that the service dogs remain healthy, happy, and able to perform their duties effectively.

Public Awareness & Education

Monthly gifts also contribute to public awareness and education campaigns. These initiatives help break down misconceptions about the role of service dogs in mental health, reduce stigma, and foster a better understanding of the positive impact these dogs have on veterans with PTSD. Increased awareness can lead to more support, both in terms of funding and societal acceptance.

Continued Research & Development

Donors’ monthly gifts support ongoing research and development in the field of service dogs for mental health. This includes exploring new training techniques, evaluating the long-term impact of service dogs on veterans’ well-being, and continually improving the programs to ensure they remain effective and responsive to the evolving needs of veterans.

Expansion of Programs

With consistent financial support, we can expand our programs to reach more veterans in need. The relationship doesn’t end after the training. Ongoing support and follow-up are provided to veterans and their service dogs. This includes periodic check-ins, additional training if necessary, and access to a supportive community ultimately making a more significant impact on the overall well-being of those who have served their country.

The Veteran Never Pays for Anything

Your monthly contribution helps cover the 24-week Service Dog Training, Dog, and All Necessary Equipment, Service Vest, Certification Record, K9 ID, Crate, Leashes, Collar, Seat Belt Restraint, Tactical Backpack, Lifetime Support, and Much More Provided at Absolutely NO CHARGE to the Veteran.
