Soldier’s Best Friend provides U.S. military veterans living with combat-related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) with Service or Therapeutic Companion Dogs, most of which are rescued from local shelters. The veteran and dog train together to build a trusting relationship that saves two lives at once and inspires countless others.
To help our war heroes improve in their symptoms of PTSD, adjust back into civilian life, lead a more productive life and help them build self esteem. We also want to help the pet overpopulation problem by helping place shelter or rescue dogs into good homes.

"My experience with Soldier’s Best Friend has been life changing. Coping with civilian life has become more manageable. From the restless nights to the difficult situations, I have something that has been an elusive possibility.... I have hope again. Having this service animal has given me both an outlet for coping and restored much of my confidence." Rick & Wilfred]]
