For Veterans

If you are a Veteran suffering with PTSD and feel a psychiatric service dog will improve the quality of your life, please fill out and submit the Introductory Application Form Below. A Rescue Representative will then contact you to continue the conversation about a potential partnership with one of our service dogs.

This list gives an idea of the type of service tasks that our dogs could be trained to perform for their Veteran Partner.

Task List

 


Our dogs (and their Veterans) remain part of The Rescue family for life.  After adoption, the Veteran is required to have a 1-month, 3-month, 6-month and then yearly check-ins to make sure the team is doing well, get assistance with any further training, submit yearly health records for the dog, and hopefully participate in Rescue events as a success story!  Every dog has their own webpage on our site and we will keep it updated with news and pictures of them and their Veteran Partner!
