PAWS AND STRIPES
Paws and Stripes is a local nonprofit located in New Mexico, setting up shelter dogs with veterans diagnosed with PTSD and/or TBI to become service dogs, at no cost to the veteran.
WHY SHOULD I ENROLL?
Insurance companies typically don’t cover the cost of service dogs for veterans. Privately, it costs from $10,000 to $60,000 for the dog and its training. This is where Paws and Stripes comes in. We provide service dogs for veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury. Most importantly, we do it for free, at no cost to the veteran to enroll.
