Veteran's Best Friend seeks support for the Military Veteran men and women who suffer with some form of psychological condition and finding homes for shelter & homeless animals so that both may live in dignity as they embark on their journey together. Veteranís Best Friend will provide our nationís heroes with accessible, cost-effective animal companionship and (service dog) training.

The goal of Veteran's Best Friend is to provide the necessary training so that a dog can be the Veteransí Psychiatric Service Dog and help place appropriate dogs with a Veteran when needed to accomplish this. We view this goal as a win-win for both the dog and Veteran involved. Not only does such a union benefit the dog and Veteran, but it also benefits the community by helping the Veteran. Many Veterans that suffer from psychological conditions like post-traumatic stress disorder find daily activities very challenging, tasks like going to the store or even work can disable them.

For a long time the answer has been medications, but such treatments can be further limiting, have undesired side-effects and long-term use can cause health issues for the Veteran. The use and support of a Psychiatric Service Dog is as natural as it can get, with the hopes of reducing the medications used and helping the Veteran regain their freedomÖby having the confidence to go out in public settings with their canine companion.
