Service Dogs: Helping Our Heroes
Share this Campaign!
GoFundVeterans needs your help to provide service dogs at no cost to veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) to help restore their life, independence, and gain emotional support.
Roughly 33% of the men and women who have spent time in war zones suffer from PTSD. These veterans often experience anxiety, hopelessness and fear that there’s no viable solution for their condition. In fact, less than 35% of veterans ever seek treatment, and when they do they often face months, sometime years, of wait time at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
We have found providing veterans with specialty trained dogs is relatively inexpensive technique that has changed veterans’ lives. These dogs are very specialized service dogs that go through long training camps to make sure they can provide the support our veterans need. Medical research has shown that Veterans who utilize service dogs report lower levels of depression and anxiety, fewer hospitalizations and numerous other benefits.
Many heroes have two legs, but some have four. For these specialized dogs, their joy in life comes from partnering with a Veteran who needs them most. These dogs give our Veterans comfort when they need it most. Help us provide as many fury friends to our heroes as possible.
