Patriot Service Dogs

Our Mission

  • We provide well trained service dogs to deserving veterans while developing the skill of inmates serving time.
  • To educate the public about the rights of service dog trainers and teams, while focusing on giving disabled veterans back some of their independence lost while preserving ours

Our Values

    • Patriot Service Dogs understands that each of us is different but equally valuable.  We are aware that at different times in our lives, each of us may need some help.
    • One must find the courage to ask for assistance; no one should do it alone.  It is our hope that not only will our service dogs provide a person with a measure of independence, but that we, as an organization, can be a source of continuing support.  Together we can change lives.

Our Vision

  • To help individuals with mobility-related disabilities or PTSD who wish to gain independence through the assistance of a specially trained service dog
  • To provide all teams (veteran + dog) with individualized training, in hopes that with their new found independence, they will reach out to others
  • To educate and create awareness among the general public regarding disabilities and service dogs and the benefits that well-trained service dogs provide to people with disabilities
