Our Mission

Raising funds to support the rescue, rehabilitation and training of Psychiatric PTSD Assistance Dogs for Australian veterans and first responders.

PTSD Dogs Australia rescue Death Row and shelter dogs, and train them to become loyal and supportive Psychiatric PTSD Assistance Dogs for Veterans & First Responders who are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), as a result of their service to our community.

Receiving an Assistance Dog can be utterly life-changing and in some cases, even LIFE-SAVING! Their Assistance Dogs are provided at NO CHARGE to their clients (Handlers), who have given a lifetime of service in their field, plus they supply lifetime support to each PTSD Assistance Dog and their handler.

More than 130,000 dogs are euthanised every year and the Department of Veterans Affairs supports a reported 230,000 personnel living with PTSD. This organization is almost entirely run on a volunteer basis and relies solely on grants, sponsorships, and donations to operate.

Please support PTSD Dogs Australia and the valuable work they do for our community.
