Folks often ask how they can help...

We’re an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) Public Service Charity – providing a unique training program for Veterans to train their own Service Dog. This training positively impacts the quality of life of the Veteran, their dog, and their family.

Every donation to SD4V is tax deductible. Your generosity changes lives.

Training Sponsorship

Purpose: Partial sponsorship are available between $500 and $8,500.

A full scholarship at $8,500 covers the entire program for the veteran and their dog–from adoption (if applicable) to training and supplies.

Donors at the full scholarship level will meet the Veteran and their dog and follow their entire training journey. You will receive pictures, personalized commentary, and an invitation to watch classes and the Veteran’s graduation.
