TWO BIG PROBLEMS, ONE GREAT SOLUTION
Every day, 22 veterans commit suicide in the United States, largely due to the suffering caused by Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Meanwhile, our animal shelters are overflowing with unwanted dogs, many of whom are friendly and trainable. About half of all shelter animals in the U.S. are euthanized.
Here at Operation Delta Dog, we rescue homeless dogs and train them to work as service dogs for veterans who struggle with TBI and PTSD. The Delta Dogs have proven to be lifesaving companions for their veterans, helping to alleviate anxiety, panic attacks, depression, and nightmares while providing constant companionship and comfort. With your help, we can help even more veterans get the “battle buddies” they need here on the home front.
