Hailey & Jason

Call-Sign: “Bug”

Graduated: September 2019

Jason and Hailey were Team R4PTSD’s second Veteran/Service Dog team to Graduate! To learn more about Jason and his life, check out our blog post here!


Hailey is sister to pups Darla and Oscar and two cute human girls, as well. She also has a hamster and chickens as siblings. She helps foster and teach other Rescue troops like Freddy, and she is cousins with Therapy Dog Winston and K9 Recruiter Maverick. When these three get together, squirrels beware! But also, all fears, nightmares, and anxieties.

Hailey is a huge help to her daddy, Jason, who is able to coach softball for his daughters and go to their cheer competitions. She goes to work with him and keeps things in line. She even matches his Halloween costumes so he can go trick-or-treating and to school events with his girls.

Hailey is also a frequent flyer! She has racked up sky miles all over the country with her daddy, siblings, and mom. And she never flies without her favorite toy and some shades to keep out the sun. 20201226_174213660_iOS

Jason is now the President for the Rescue, and Hailey’s mommy, Holly, is an Advisor to the Board. They travel to graduations for other Veteran and Service Dog teams, helping welcome other families into the Rescue. They help make the Rescue feel like home for the other teams, as well as guiding Team Rescue in service of those families. We could not be more grateful for Jason, Hailey, and their family for what they have brought to the Rescue for PTSD!
