HELPING VETERANS ONE PAW AT A TIME
“Dogs are not our whole life but they make our lives whole.” -Roger Caras
Sacred Paws Service Dogs is a registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit charitable organization. Our mission is to train service dogs and place them at no cost, to military veterans that have been diagnosed with trauma related mental and physical disabilities as a result of their military service.
Our clinical approach is primarily holistic cognitive based mindfulness therapy, utilizing canine assisted desensitization and intervention techniques that are evidence based and medically proven to mitigate negative symptoms of post traumatic stress, military sexual trauma, major depression and anxiety disorders.
We also have the ability to train our dogs to assist those veterans with mobility impairments in order to help them live a more productive lifestyle.
Our primary goal is to create a healing alternative to trauma in order to help end veterans suicide.
We understand that the process waiting for a Service Dog can sometimes feel like forever. Which is why we have designed a simple approach to helping veterans before, after, and during their transition becoming a recipient of their forever friends.
