Mission: to provide companion canines for US military veterans (and select First Responders) battling PTSD.
Upwards of 22 US military veterans commit suicide every day. A large contributor to the emotional destabilization and maladjustment to civilian life stems from living with combat-related PTSD. PTSD effects every facet of life; social, physical, mental, spiritual. While the wounds may not be physical, the scars that develop from this condition run deep, and are reluctant to fade on their own.
Companion canines assist the veteran with emotional support to limited mobility/distress assistance to deal with everyday situations.
DAWG is building a team to participate in the Bridgeway Run Houston! For A Cause program at the upcoming Run Houston! U 0f H.
