Our Pillars

What are we doing

Enhacing Mental Health

Our specially trained dogs have a proven track record of enhancing the mental health of those suffering from PTSD. Our dogs are working animals help people who are living with disabilities do everyday tasks and activities so they become more independent.

Community Awareness

As a national organisation, PTSD Dogs Australia also provides an education program to inform and promote awareness around the valuable role of PTSD-certified assistance dogs in both public and private organisations across the greater community. 

Dog Welfare

The dogs we rescue are between eight months and three years of age. Our newest and most vulnerable recruits receive unconditional love in a caring and positive home environment while receiving their necessary training to become certified.

Rescue dogs can enhance the
mental health of veterans and
first responders with PTSD

Dogs are much more than just your average pet – they are loyal companions who can have a significant impact on our lives. Rescue dogs can be trained to enhance the mental health of Veterans and First Responders who are struggling with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). PTSD can be a debilitating condition that affects many individuals who have experienced traumatic events in their lives. However, dogs have a calming effect on humans and can help reduce symptoms of anxiety, depression, and stress. These rescue dogs can not only provide emotional support to those in need but they also provide a sense of purpose and a reason to get out of bed in the morning. By adopting a rescue dog who is trained to help those with PTSD, Veterans and First Responders can experience a sense of peace and comfort that may have been difficult to find otherwise.
