The DFW Canines for Veterans is a 501c3 non profit organization dedicated to placing service dogs with military veterans suffering from PTSD, TBI and Mobility issues, in hopes to ease the debilitating discomfort of PTSD & TBI of veterans when partnered with their service dogs. Once trained these amazing battle buddies accompany their veteran every where they go, assisting them in their daily lives, and giving back their freedom as they have done so for us.

They are 100% funded from our own pockets, public donations and corporate sponsors.

Each day 22 veterans commit suicide, and that is just too many.  are trying to help them by training and providing them with Battle Buddies. They do not charge the veterans, but it does cost the organization $20,000 per trained dog.
