Due to the ongoing effects and uncertainty of COVID-19 Pandemic, we continue to rely on your VOTES, DONATIONS and SUPPORT.
The dogs PTSD Dogs Australia rescue find themselves abandoned and homeless placed into uninviting cold metal cages and kept in foreign environments that are noisy, scary and completely unfamiliar to any home environment.
This is the reality for these dogs, through no fault of their own, find themselves on death row and in pounds and shelters, hoping and needing a second chance at life.
Dogs are “man's best friend” and yet they are far from considered equals. Humans purchase them, surrender them, and treat them however they see fit. Regrettably, humans often treat them as a commodity.
Dogs, just like us, have a heart, they are sentient beings, with great empathy.
Dogs, experience similar emotions to us including fear, frustration, anxiety, joy, love, trust and respect. PTSD Dogs Australia is answering the call, fighting the good fight on the front lines of the abandoned dogs and leading the way in training rescue dogs to become Psychiatric PTSD Assistance Dogs instead of utilising industry standard puppy breeding programs therefore reducing euthanasia rates and long waits for a Psychiatric PTSD Assistance Dog.
A registered public benevolent institution and endorsed by the ATO item one section 30.15 of the income tax assessment act 1997, we have been on the ground since 2018, rescuing dogs directly from death row pounds and shelters, establishing critical alliances and partnering with council pounds and shelters. 20 Dogs and Handlers have been paired in this period and more to come.
When we arrive on the scene our rescue dogs are without a voice, they are vulnerable, even display caution and distrust. All from different experiences, similar correlations can be drawn for our Veterans who tell us we are their last hope. Every single brave survivor is cared for as if they were the only one. Our dogs receive medical treatment, rehabilitation, and in-home care in a sanctuary of love, where they can rebuild confidence and skills to see them become the best version of themselves. Then go onto help save a Veteran or First Responder clinically diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.
Vision - Every Rescue Dog can save a human, equally every human can save a rescue dog!
