Northwest Battle Buddies gifts professionally trained service dogs to Veterans battling PTSD, helping them regain their freedom and independence.

22 Veterans a day, over 8000 a year, commit suicide on American Soil.

Many American Heroes return home to find their greatest battle still awaits. For a Veteran with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) the battle is never over. They come home and find everything has changed… because they have been changed.

Thanks to generous donations, our heroes can live life again.
