“now i am”

The simple things that we often take for granted can be impossible for Veterans with PTSD.

Visiting the grocery store. Going to the movies. Dining in a restaurant. Navigating public transportation. Even spending time with loved ones. With the support of a Northwest Battle Buddies service dog these Veterans can overcome the debilitating symptoms of PTSD and start living the life they deserve, with freedom and independence.

“It is our hope that the day before the Veteran meets their service dog is their last worst day…… The day they meet their service dog is their best first day.”

Shannon Walker, Founder & CEO
