Program Description

We offer and provide PTSD service dogs, thru our "So God Made a Rescue Dog" Program.  Heal Our Troops America will rescue canines suitable for being a service dog from rescues and shelters, and train them specifically for Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress. 

We work with local VA Hospitals and VA Service Centers throughout San Diego, LA, Riverside, and Orange Counties to offer our program to local Veterans in recovery from PTSD. 

As recommended by the VA, Veterans are actively involved in the training of their dog for 18-24 months, if possible.  Those Veterans that cannot commit to this, or those canines that are already trained, Veterans attend a three-week onsite training program to get acquainted and learn how to properly care for their new canine companion.  Ongoing support is available throughout the year in accordance with ADI Minimum Standards.
