Due to COVID-19, Journey is seeking caring individuals to assist with raising service dog puppies. These individuals will open their home to dogs under the age of two and help them learn the skills essential to be a successful partner to a disabled person. Supplies and training are provided by Journey Together Service Dog. It is essential that raisers attend at least two training sessions a month as well as reporting on the progress of their assigned puppy.

Mission Statement

Our mission is to provide highly trained service dogs to people diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Dogs are placed at no charge with qualified WISCONSIN residents who are 18 years or older.

Description

Journey Together Service Dog began in 2015 with the purpose of working with area prisons to teach inmates job skills while raising and training service dogs for people with PTSD. These people are usually veterans or crime victims. Since we started, the program has expanded to also place some dogs with individuals in a wheel chair and as facility dogs for animal assisted therapy.
