Criteria for our Veteran Candidates:
Our service dogs are paired with veterans based on the dog’s skills and abilities which best fit with the needs of the veteran. We do not pair dogs on a first-come, first-served basis due to the need to pair the right dog with the right person.
Veteran applicants must have a referral from a licensed healthcare provider which recommends a service dog and service dog-specific tasks that the provider believes would be beneficial to the treatment plan for the veteran.
Veterans must fill out an application and supply a copy of their DD214 with personal references
Veteran candidates must be willing to take on the full responsibility of the dog financially after placement, provide daily enrichment, continue training with their dog, and continue basic veterinary care and grooming responsibilities.
