Thinking of donating but wondering
Where your money goes?
Every dollar you donate can help save a life

Once placed with their handler, each dog/handler team is supplied with a basic kit comprising of a crate, jacket with ID, collar, bowls for feed and water, leads and training accessories.
Sponsor a PTSD Dog
Cobber has come from being a reserved puppy to a fun-loving young boy who loves his walks at the beach, the more sand the better, foraging for scraps, and watching the world go by. Eager to learn and please, he will try whatever new ‘task’ is being asked of him and will surpass all expectations once he puts his mind to it.
An 18month old rescue groodle cross brought into the PTSD Dogs family as an adolescent. Arlo is a very willing worker for both food and a game. He will also let his trainer know if he is bored with what’s happening. Very laid back and chilled, Arlo is very confident about his world and every environment he enters. Arlo is in training to be paired with an airforce veteran.
Effervescent sassy and strong Ms Pinky is a born leader. From the moment she arrived with her two sisters we quickly identified Pinky as the Alpha Dog. Wherever she went the sisters would follow. Pinky will push her way through with a head strong determination. These traits can make for a robust and resilient Assistance Dog.
