Healing Hearts and Minds


Welcome to Veterans With Dogs - the pioneers of a groundbreaking initiative in the UK. Established in 2012 as the very first organisation in the UK to provide mental health assistance dogs for Veterans, we have been on a relentless mission to transform the lives of Veterans and active-duty service members facing mental health difficulties. 
Why did we embark on this extraordinary journey? Simple. We recognised a critical gap in support for those struggling with mental health disabilities.
There were no other organisations in the UK exclusively focused on providing assistance dogs for these brave individuals; we knew it was time to take action.
Witnessing the profound suffering experienced by Veterans and their families struck a chord within us. The staggering reality of more lives lost to suicide than on the battlefield shook us to the core. The rising divorce rates, homelessness, and the devastating impact on their children left us determined to make a difference.
At Veterans With Dogs, we believe that when people and dogs unite, magic happens. We are driven by a passion to enhance the health and well-being of Veterans, and we've witnessed the transformative effects that occur when these extraordinary partnerships are formed.
We are dedicated to improving the lives of British Veterans facing trauma-related conditions such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injuries and other serious mental health conditions, by providing the highest quality Assistance Dogs and Canine Assisted interventions.
The future holds incredible promise as we forge ahead, committed to expanding our reach and impact. We're thrilled by the possibilities that lie ahead and the countless Veterans we can support through partnerships with assistance dogs.
But we can't do it alone. We invite you to join us in sharing our vision and making a meaningful impact. Together, we can achieve our goals and create a brighter future for our servicemen and women.
Are you ready to be part of something extraordinary? Embrace the power of Dogs and help us change lives. Join us on this inspiring journey today.
