Pave service dogs are trained and placed free of charge with veterans including equipment and supplies valued at over $1,000. We depend on donations and volunteers to support our mission. Pave service dogs are trained for veterans with mental and/or physical disabilities and our teams receive extensive training and follow-up. There is a great need for service dogs for veterans and the demand is larger than the supply. It is estimated that 22 veterans commit suicide daily. Assistance dogs have been shown to have a very positive influence on the mental and physical state of veterans.
