My project supports: Service Dogs 4 Veterans

I want to help Service Dogs 4 Veterans because I've always loved animals and our nation's heroes need help sometimes.  Maybe, by rescuing a dog, we can help save a Veteran.

A Dog Like Daisy, written by Kristen Tubb, has really inspired me to help those around us who need a service dog.  This book, one of my favorites, was introduced to me in third grade when I was doing the bookopoly challenge with our school librarian.  At the end of the book, Ms. Tubb shares a little about helping someone in need get a service dog and I thought that was really cool. Now, I am trying to raise money to get a veteran with PTSD a service dog.  The main character in the book is Daisy, a mutt who has a tragic backstory about living in a dumpster with her pups when a dump truck scoops her pups away with the rest of the trash in the dumpster.  Daisy is brown and has a torn ear, which she doesn’t let anyone touch.  She was rescued from a shelter and taken through a vigorous ten week program where they train her to become a service dog for Colonel Victor.  Colonel Victor is a retired veteran who came home with and now has frequent seizures which is why he needs a service dog who can sense when those seizures happen. 

Veterans can have PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) or TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury).  Veterans who have served our country could have panic attacks or anxiety when reminded of their time in the war or in service.  This affects their mental health.  They can get a service dog to help them, and with counseling and sometimes  medication, a service dog can help reduce anxiety. Service dogs also provide companion ships and comfort to a veteran.
Service Dogs for Veterans will train a dog for a veteran.  SD4V rescues a dog from the Carolinas and pairs this dog with a veteran.  SD4V has a goal to use 100% shelter and rescue dogs.  These dogs are matched with a veteran and do an 8 month training program.  My goal is to pay for the training of a rescue dog for a veteran.
