Want to make a difference?

We rely on your generosity to make a difference to rescue dogs, training to become Assistance Dogs, and veterans who are struggling daily with PTSD. We have great opportunities for people wanting to get involved to make a direct impact to what we do like…

And of course donating and fundraising; we’re still a young charity and all donations get spend on our core activities which is allowing veterans and rescue dogs to go on a mutually beneficial journey to become PTSD Assistance Dog Partnerships.
