Mission Outline

The Patriots Voice Foundation and sponsors as well as Collaborative local charities each contribute to provide pups with the goal of developing into service dogs. These dogs will be provided to a member of local communities. Sponsorship covers cost of pup, their veterinary care, spay and neuter , transportation and contribution towards first year food and maintenance. The sponsor or partnering non profit selects the recipient category in their community (local firefighter, police, veteran or at risk youth) and Patriots Voice helps coordinate with a local training organization (non profit or for profit). During Covid we learned the power of resilience and some training can also be done through Zoom

Sessions and other tutorials The Patriots Voice Foundation and the local non profit can present the pup to a person or organization (depending on anonymity choice of individual) as a part of a community event or fundraiser. Participating non profits will be a part of a nationwide media campaign.

Service Dog

Patriots Voice will coordinate all aspects of care up to transference of the service pup and follow the handler/puppy progress all the way through boot camp. After the inception of the program the results and accountability will transfer into collaborative grants pursued by the patriots voice foundation (and partners) to serve even more people in need for 2024

Based on research studies conducted at Purdue University as well as other emerging studies, service dog partnerships are demonstrating themselves as a promising resource for reducing suicide and providing mental health support to at-risk populations such as veterans and first responders who have experienced trauma or mental illness.


One low-risk, high-reward potential solution is pairing combat vets with service dogs who are specially trained to mitigate post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury, which commonly affect ex service members and contribute to suicide.


”After the animal-assisted treatment,” Muela went on, “the young people showed reductions in suicidal ideation and non-suicidal self-harm, as well as a greater willingness to seek help

For many people with disabilities, service dogs perform major tasks for a better quality of life. Though the assistance that they provide is essential to many people’s lives, it is not cheap. While getting a service dog may seem like a daunting and stressful task, it certainly isn’t an impossible one.

So, how much does a trained service dog cost?

Typically, you can expect to buy an already trained service for $15,000 to $50,000 upfront, although the amount will vary. It depends on the breed of dog, type of training, and other factors. In some cases, a service dog can cost up to $60,000.

Why are service dogs so expensive?

Because of the extensive training and additional care they should receive, getting a trained service dog from a service dog provider can be a daunting, stressful, and expensive endeavor.

Many service dog organizations tell us one of the biggest obstacles are finding pups who qualify for their programs. We hope to help bridge that gap with a positive impact allowing those organizations to focus their fundraising efforts on training and infrastructure.

Are There Any Financial Assistance Programs or Resources For Those In Need Of a Service Dog? Yes and No!

The good news is Yes, there are other financing options available.

DIY Fundraising

There is no federal or state funding specifically available to pay the costs of purchasing a service dog for a person with a disability. Therefore, fundraising has become more feasible with online fundraising platforms like GoFundMe. These platforms can make it possible to share your personal story across the world. Even donations of a few dollars here and there start to add up.

Health insurance

Major insurance providers typically don’t cover the price of a service dog or its training, but some smaller providers may offer partial coverage.

Learn the stats about suicide.

The statistics about suicide are very overwhelming and disheartening, but they help us get a better picture of the issue at hand. Here’s what you need to know:

  • In 2020, the prevalence of serious suicidal thoughts was highest among young adults aged 18-25 at 11.3%
  • LGBTQ youth are more than four times as likely to attempt suicide than their peers
  • Between 2007 and 2018 the suicide rate among those age 10 to 24 increased nearly 60%, according to the CDC.

2023 pups destined for Arizona Florida Minnesota Montana North Carolina South Carolina. *Just as in any program we cannot guarantee every pup will pass the stringent standards to become a service dog. However we make every effort to preselect pups raised by trusted breeders who are able to temperament test and evaluate a pups candidacy. This includes selection of breeds or breed crosses that have demonstrated consistency in excelling as service dogs.
