Soldier’s Best Friend pairs military veterans with PTSD/TBI with a service or therapeutic companion dogs making it easier for veterans to readjust to civilian life. Most of our dogs are rescued from local shelters and build a trusting relationship that saves two lives at once, and inspires countless others.

Services include:

- Support and service animal placement and/or training
- Dogs will be spayed, neutered, vaccinated and receive all recommended preventative medications prior to placement
- Rescue dog veterinary services and most supplies will be at no charge during training
- Dogs owned by the veteran will be offered veterinary services at a reduced rate during training

There are no fees to the veteran during the placement and training period. We are based in Arizona with training locations in Phoenix, Tucson, Prescott, Flagstaff and Sierra Vista. The veteran that will have to travel or relocate will be responsible for transportation, housing costs, and their own meals. On average, service dog training takes 6-9 months to complete the program and a therapeutic companion dog, training averages 3-5 months.

Veterans with a confirmed diagnosis of PTSD or TBI are welcome to apply. Visit our website to request an application by completing the online form and submit it. Upon successful submission, we will email a more comprehensive application packet to you for consideration of placement and training with a service dog. If you do not have email access, we can mail the application packet. Please call to request a packet be mailed to you.
