How Do We Operate?

It takes between $17,000 - $20,000 to purchase, raise and train each Service Dog.

Our charity is run by veterans, it supports veterans/first responders, and their families, and we are dedicated to helping each other find a new normal. The bottom line is our service dogs improve the quality of life for injured veterans and the service dogs save lives.

2022 & 2023 were remarkable years for our charity, characterized by financial growth, program success and effective risk management.


Where are your donations spent?

The majority of our expenses are allocated to program costs providing not only trained Service Dogs but also peer support and care to everyone in the Unit.

Our growth can be attributed to increased fundraising efforts, successful partnerships and the generosity of our supporters.
