The Dogs

A specially trained PTSD service dog can quite literally save a recipient’s life by neutralizing negative emotions and providing a sense of security. Our service K9s are trained to intercept flashbacks, blunt nightmares and guide in stressful situations. These skills are further complemented by a set of tailored, specific tasks depending on the needs of the individual Veteran.

Our Program

Our program is enormously successful, and we routinely witness miraculous transformations that occur once we start the process. The program is funded entirely by individual and corporate donations and grants

Our Trainers

Our trainers are the best of the best – our men and women in blue. These police K9 handlers have walked the walk and continue to serve, understanding the struggles of our Veterans better than anyone else.

Our Board of Directors

Our board of directors are accomplished, patriotic professionals who volunteer their time and passion to the cause, i.e. every donated dollar goes directly towards the program. All our lives have been touched by PTSD in various ways and supporting our armed services is in our core.
