Service Dog Assistance

The SD Gunner Fund was created to assist Veterans and disabled children with the financial expense of owning much needed service animals. Service Animals require a variety of necessary items in order to perform their service. Those items can include but are not limited to: vests, custom harnesses, other assistance items, veterinary visits, and more. Service dogs are trained to support individuals with mobility, hearing, psychiatric, and brain/neurological disabilities. These dogs are professionally trained to meet the individual needs of their partner and completes tasks such as opening doors, picking up dropped objects, assisting with daily dressing, or pulling a manual wheelchair.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

May no veteran, child, or service animal be left behind. 22 veterans a day are committing suicide. If we can save one life by making sure that individual does not have to lose their service animal, then we have made a difference. If we can provide a child with a service animal that will allow them to be more independent at school or in public, then we have made a difference.

The SD Gunner Fund participates in a variety of awareness campaigns and fundraising events to raise funds for our programs.
