The Problem

Each year, over 5 million veterans are affected by Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, leaving them to deal with painful and frightening symptoms such as flashbacks, isolation, insomnia, and anger. PTSD is an incredibly difficult illness to face, and the men and women who have served our nation in active duty deserve effective treatment and compassionate support.

The Solution Offered by Southeastern Guide Dogs

Through their Paws for Patriots program, Southeastern Guide Dogs matches veterans dealing with PTSD with a loving service dog. The partnership that develops between a veteran and their dog is truly moving, as the dog gains a loving owner while the veteran gains the support and freedom of companionship. Help our nation’s heroes be their best selves, by giving the gift of unconditional love and companionship.
