Journey Together Service Dog is looking for indivituals interested in socializing our dogs in training to be service dogs. Because our dogs spend the majority of their time being raised by inmates at Oshkosh Correctional Institution, there are many things they would not experience without the help of our community volunteers.

A Journey volunteer receives training on how to handle the dogs in public settings like stores, children's events, restaurants, public library and more. The dogs need the opportunity to experience as many sights and sounds as we can offer them. This exposure is essential for the dog to grow up and become a confident partner for a disabled individual.

Volunteers set their own hours and let us know when they are able to work with a dog. We have many families who have worked together to help socialize the dogs. Some people only take dogs on public outings, others decide they want to also open their home as more exposure opportunities for the dogs. The options are endless

You provide the love, we provide the puppy.

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.
