Before this program I would avoid public places, especially during the day and only do shopping after midnight and before 6 a.m. And never alone. Because of this program with Soldier’s Best Friend, I have a battle buddy that will go anywhere with me. We have grown so much and now we are an effective team. She watches out for me and I watch out for her.
Thank you all so much for letting me be a part of SBF.

Soldier’s Best Friend provides U.S. military veterans living with combat-related Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) with Service or Therapeutic Companion Dogs, most of which are rescued from local shelters. The veteran and dog train together to build a trusting relationship that saves two lives at once and inspires countless others.
To help our war heroes improve in their symptoms of PTSD, adjust back into civilian life, lead a more productive life and help them build self esteem. We also want to help the pet overpopulation problem by helping place shelter or rescue dogs into good homes.
On Tuesday, August 19, Soldiers Best Friend will participate in the APS agency fair at their main office in downtown Phoenix. Highlighting local charitable organizations, this event allows us to offer information to APS employees about our program, mission and volunteer opportunities.
Soldiers Best Friend will be attending the Wells Fargo Days of Caring events on August 27 and September 2. This is a statewide volunteerism program outreach in conjunction with their Community Support Campaign. Soldiers Best Friend has been designated along with another charity to be the recipients of their efforts.
