MISSION – To improve veterans’ health and assist them in regaining their independence through the partnership of a trained service dog to help assist and manage the symptoms of post-trauma life, giving them a second chance at better health and happiness. We help our heroes by serving veterans of all wars, who have been diagnosed by the Veteran’s Administration (VA) with Post Traumatic Stress (PTS), Military Sexual Trauma (MST) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) through the assistance and guidance of a Veteran Service Dog Training Program.
VISION – To become a model Service Dog Training Program which exclusively meets the overwhelming psychological needs of veterans who have returned from military conflicts. Document and showcase the effectiveness of such service dog programs in instilling confidence, regaining perspective and healing the invisible psychological wounds of conflict.
KEEP THE PROMISE – Seek out eligible veterans in need of psychological healing and support through a service dog program. Ensure our Veterans receive the highest quality training and support we can offer by providing qualified volunteer trainers and a training regimen in obedience, public access and task/work that the dog will perform in order to meet the individual needs of the veteran.
