What is Patriotic Service Dog Foundation?

Today, an estimated 460,000 veterans from the Iraq and Afghanistan war alone, struggle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). These conditions can lead to sleeplessness, depression, anger, anxiety and isolation. While these feelings can be overwhelmingly difficult, they are treatable, but so many continue to suffer in silence. Each day, in the world’s greatest nation, 22 of our heroes will take their own lives.

The Patriotic Service Dog Foundation’s goal is to reduce that statistic from “22 to Zero”.

Patriotic Service Dog Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on serving our veterans by raising awareness for their needs and providing Service Dogs to those who may benefit from long-term mental and physical assistance. Through the efforts of Patriotic Service Dog Foundation our wounded veterans are matched with highly trained and skilled Service Dogs that allow their new partners to become more independent, self-confident, and comfortable with life outside of the military. Our close knit community of volunteers and professional trainers work alongside deserving veterans to develop lasting and meaningful bonds with dogs that provide so much more than just companionship.
