I sat on the bed getting ready to end my life. Barrett put his paw on my leg and looked at me like, ‘It’s OK, bro. I’ve been there myself.’ That night, Barrett saved my life. PTSD can feel like drinking nine energy drinks and if you have no outlet, life can be overbearing. Freedom Service Dogs is not just about dogs helping with physical disabilities, it’s about true, ongoing, FREEDOM.
Freedom Service Dogs is a nonprofit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by rescuing dogs and custom training them for individual client needs. Their clients include children, veterans and active duty military, and other adults with disabilities including traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy, spinal cord injuries, muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, post-traumatic stress disorder, and autism.
FSD has graduated over 350 client/dog teams. Each and every year over 100 dogs are rescued.
Freedom and security are precious gifts that we, as
Americans, should never take for granted. We must do all we can to extend our
hand in times of need to those who willingly sacrifice each day to provide that
freedom and security. While we can never do enough to show gratitude to our
nation's defenders, we can always do a little more.
