Veterans Service Dogs Program
100% of your donation trains service dogs for U.S. military veterans.
Your donation changes the lives of US military veterans, partnering them with trained service dogs, empowering the heroes who have served our country. Your gift provides them the tools to lead independent and fulfilling lives. You may even donate in someone's honor or donate to our dedicated Black Veterans program.
Pawsitivity trains service dogs for veterans with many disabilities, including Traumatic Brain Injuries and PTSD. The "signature injuries" of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars occur so often in part because more soldiers are surviving blast injuries due to improved torso protection, surviving only to live with the percussive head wounds.

If you are a US military veteran who is interested in getting a service dog from Pawsitivity, check our application page, which will be updated when we have a dog ready and are accepting applications (about twice a year).
