Provide 20 Hours of Training for a Veteran’s Service Dog

FUNDED July 5 2019 – Thank You!

Help train and provide service dogs of the highest quality, at no cost to disabled American veterans ,in order to help restore their physical and emotional independence.

American Soldiers are coming home in greater numbers than in previous wars. Although the number of survivors has increased, they are coming back with more life-changing injuries and disabilities. This includes invisible injuries like PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury. Over 400,000 veterans have been diagnosed with PTSD or TBI since 2001. We are losing these American Heroes at the rate of 22 per day to suicide.

GreaterGood.org is working with Patriot PAWS Service Dogs that specialize in training rescued dogs to provide services for Veterans with mental health issues. The goal is to cut down on the number of suicides by assisting disabled veterans in regaining their emotional and physical independence and confidence by providing them with a service dog.  3.9 million dogs enter animal shelters per year. We are able to work with partners to identify dogs and pull them out of shelters and into our program. Dogs that do not end up meeting training goals for therapy purposes are adopted into loving homes.

PTSD dogs can be trained in approximately half the time of a mobility service dog. This will help us to place more dogs with more veterans. Thus, saving the lives of more veterans and dogs alike.  A dog’s gentle spirit that touches one’s soul can provide companionship and comfort for veterans that no one else understands. This companionship offers the security and confidence that is desperately needed.

 

They have protected us – now you can help protect them.
