Got Dog?

BY JUDY KEENE
@ VOL 10 ON JAN 30, 2014

In gratitude to our courageous military heroes, Judy Keene left corporate America two years ago to become a full-time volunteer and administrator for Next Step Service Dogs. Here, an inspiring group of people train service dogs for veterans with PTSD. Next Step trains rescue dogs to be amazing service dogs, whose job is to serve their veteran with trained behaviors that diminish or prevent seizures and sense anxiety. 

------------------

To help those who are unable to afford the cost of a service animal, we created a guide that breaks down the total costs of obtaining a service dog, and provide a list of several alternative methods for financing these costs.

We also included a list of accredited organizations who provide complete or partial financial assistance for several different causes and individuals in need.
