Who We Are

Returning to civilian life can be very hard for any veteran, and often there aren’t enough resources available. Having a service animal is another layer of support; helping the veteran cope with everyday stressors, regain confidence, and connect with the world again. The impact is great because the service dog is by the veteran’s side 24/7, and fosters the meaning, “I got your 6.”

That’s where we come in. Hope Lives Here provides service dogs for veterans who suffer from post-traumatic stress (PTS), traumatic brain injury (TBI), military sexual trauma (MST) and or chronic pain disorders. Service dogs are very expensive, with fees ranging from $15,000-$75,000. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not cover this cost. Through our program, eligible veterans are not obligated to pay a penny.

What makes Hope Lives Here unique? We rescue dogs from local shelters, pair them with a veteran, and train the two as a team. The bond formed between the service dog and veteran is like no other. We believe in healing heroes, two at a time.
