Our Stories

Learn from the veterans who have gone through the HAVEN training program to discover how their dogs are helping them.


Tom and Gunner

The doctor says I am ahead on my rehab. I told him it's the magic power a dog has. Gunner has never been this affectionate before. He has been like this since I got home.

Cornell and Phaela

It's not easy to so say in so few words just how much of an impact Phaela has had on my life. Before her, my life was a mere existence. Now as I and my family can attest, I have purpose.

Adam and Brave

With Brave as my service dog, I feel confident going new places. She creates comfort for me in environments that may have been stressful for me before. Brave recognizes and notices things that I don't, which makes me feel more comfortable. I'm now living life with fewer limitations and less stress.

Mike and Sniper

It's truly amazing how Sniper has helped me through the hardest of times. Having him by my side has helped me cope with everyday issues."

John and Hank

Hank is an amazing friend. Even though he is still a puppy, he is always by my side. Hank has taken the rage and anger of just living and given me joy and peace, providing me the ability to enjoy so much more of each day.
