When a veteran returns home, the battle isn’t always over. According the US Department of Veteran Affairs, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects anywhere from 11% to 30% of military veterans in the United States. One of the most effective ways to support them is with dedicated service dogs, but the cost is often prohibitive—once a dog’s food, training and medical care are factored in, a single canine companion can cost $30,000.
That’s why Pivot Point Consulting is raising funds for Dogs2DogTags, an organization that rescues shelter dogs, trains them as support animals, then places each with a veteran diagnosed with post-combat stress and anxiety. There is no out-of-pocket cost for those receiving a service dog.
Will you help us reach our goal of fully funding a service animal for one veteran in need?
