Dogs For Our Brave is a Non-Profit organization devoted to pairing American Veterans who have sustained service-related injuries with specially trained canines – all at zero cost to the veteran. When looking for canine candidates to train, Dogs For Our Brave focuses first on rescuing from shelters to provide less fortunate dogs with a new life.

Dogs For Our Brave is continually accepting applications for veterans who are interested in enrolling in the program. Andy Gladstein founded this service as a way to thank veterans for their dedication and sacrifice, and to help with healing after life-altering trauma. The service dogs provided are trained to perform above and beyond the standard commands of most service pets by receiving additional training according to the physical needs of their veteran owner. This therapeutic relationship is made more attainable for veterans as Dogs For Our Brave completely covers all foreseeable pet-related expenses that veterans could incur including: food for the dog, pharmaceuticals, veterinary care, and training.By covering 100% of the financial needs of the service pet, Dogs For Our Brave and its donors allow the veteran to focus on their health.

“Making life better for dogs, too.” Dogs For Our Brave emphasizes the importance and opportunity of benefiting both the veteran and service pet in their new companionship. Dogs For Our Brave is dedicated to providing a meaningful resource to those who have served our country. Open enrollment for qualifying veterans is happening now.
