Got Your Six Support Dogs
First responders and men and women in the military put their lives on the line every day to ensure the safety and care of others. They often witness unimaginable tragedy that may lead to the development of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. One very effective treatment for this condition is the use of therapy dogs. Got Your Six Support Dogs is a charitable organization that trains and supplies service dogs to veterans and first responders who are experiencing PTSD and/or sexual trauma.
Their mission is “to help those who struggle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as well as sexual trauma, Got Your Six Support Dogs’ goal is to place trained PTSD service dogs with veterans and first-responders at no cost to help them heal from the psychological stress of war and duty through the compassion and healing power of their loyal 4-legged companions.”
Aside from their dedication to individuals who have served, this organization also offers training for service dogs who then are taken out into the community to offer comfort and support to people in schools, hospitals, nursing homes, and similar institutions.
Got Your Six Support Dogs accepts both monetary and supply donations, and their online shop offers items such as ball caps, t-shirts, tumblers, coffee mugs, bracelets, and more. The Got Your Six Support Dogs website is full of information about their mission, who they serve, how to help, and how to receive their services.
Midwest Members Credit Union is proud to support this compassionate organization.
