A dedication to provide rehabilitation through non-medicinal therapies with service canines to Veterans suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder , TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury)and Physical Disabilities.
Our program is designed to address the normal behavior and need of the canine while addressing the symptoms of PTS and TBI. ... Each particular activity, command or exercise correlates to a symptoms, know or unknown, to the Veteran. This program will not only provide the therapy needed to cope with reestablishing social living, it will also provide a new purpose or commitment in life as the focus is to help a fellow Veteran, with the by-product being then a highly trained service dog needed for a fellow Veteran. Providing a non-medicinal therapy with the standard medical protocols of today, will increase effectively the reduction of symptoms and enhance the treatment for other psychological issues.
All of our dogs, whom are named in honor of a fallen solider, are rescued and trained with Volunteers and Trainers for a 12 month to 16 month period learning more then 100 exposures of every day living and more than 40 commands. Our program is designed to help two lives, (rescued dog - Veteran) while inspiring countless others and works on private funding and donations as we are a 501c3 organization.
