NEVER QUIT, NEVER GIVE UP

“It is our hope that the day before a Veteran meets their service dog is their last worst day…

and the day they meet their service dog it is their best first day.”

– Shannon Walker, CEO & Founder⁠

Why we do what we do

Give back to our American heroes who have sacrificed for our freedom.

Today, on American soil, approximately 20+ Veterans will end their own lives by suicide due in part to Post Traumatic Stress.

Many American Heroes return home to find their greatest battle still awaits. For a Veteran with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), the battle is never over. They come home and find everything has changed… because they have been changed.

There is no cure for PTSD; however, with a canine Battle Buddy by their side, veterans with PTSD can reduce their symptoms with life-changing results.
