Thank you to all the donors who are helping make dreams come true for our first responders and veterans.
It is only with the help of different departments, businesses and our supportive community that we are able to train service dogs for first responders and veterans with PTSD.
Our goal is to help them heal, 4 paws at a time.
"After applying for a service dog through FirefightersWithPTSd.org, I was contacted by Matt who stated they had a German Shepherd ready to go. Due to my health I am unable to fly or drive/ride long distances. Matt was very helpful in the entire process. I cannot thank Matt and FirefightersWithPTSD enough for helping me in getting a service dog and delivering her to me. Ziva has helped me so much since she has gotten here.I feel a lot more comfortable staying home by myself now. She is with me all the time where ever I go. She needs to make sure the scene is safe! Thank you FirefightersWithPTSD for all your help with service dog Ziva!"

Troy is an Air Force veteran and retired fire captain in Minnesota. We were honored to place service dog Kato with Troy. Kato fit right in to his new life with Troy and his family within days of placement.
We thank Becca Curtis at Off Leash K9 Training for the boarding and training with Kato over the year before placement. Her hard work and dedication produced a wonderful service dog who is attentive and ready to work.
