It is estimated that over 30% of returning GWOT veterans have Post Traumatic Stress and/or Traumatic Brain Injuries. Nearly 1,600 veterans have returned as amputees and there are still more additional medical complexities such as seizure disorders, heart euthymia and early onset of Parkinson’s.

OUR CORE VALUES

1rescue-22-foundation-logo
QUALITY ABOVE QUANTITY
Legitimate service dogs take several months to train. A veteran depends on their k9 for life saving tasks and life improving services. From K9 selection to training to integration, quality is paramount throughout our program.
INDIVIDUALIZATION NOT MASS PRODUCTION
Resisting "scale" versus "the right dog for the job". K9s as a viable clinical resource require a high level of individualization.
INFORMING BEST PRACTICE
Our partnerships with sponsored evaluation initiatives provides crucial data, moving the needle towards public funding for service k9s, as well as a deeper understanding of k9s as an alternative therapy

Did You Know the VA does not cover the costs of a service dog?

The Rescue 22 Foundation will never take funds or ask a veteran to fundraise to cover the costs associated with receiving a service dog.
