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.
Matching the right service 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 a suitable rescue dog. 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.
