Service Dogs for Veterans
Team Foster partners with accredited service dog trainers to obtain, uniquely train and partner service dogs with injured and disabled Veterans. Each service dog takes two years and more than $25,000 to train.* If you are seeking a service dog, contact us and we will connect you with an accredited dog trainer in your area.
Veteran Support System
[Got Your Six]
Once a Veteran is part of our team, Team Foster continues to support the Veteran and their service dog. Whether it’s financial, veterinary care or other needs, we “have ‘got your six.’” If you are a Veteran in need, contact us.
Financial Support for Veteran Needs
[React to Contact]
Team Foster provides financial support to any Veteran in financial or medical need. We are ready, willing and able to “react to contact” when a Veteran’s needs go beyond traditional Veteran support. If you know of a Veteran in need, contact us.
Raising Service Dog Puppies
[Trust the Pawcess]
Veterans sometimes wait 2+ years to get a service dog because there aren’t enough puppy raisers. Volunteer puppy raisers are a critical part of the process. Puppy raisers help provide a home, care and training for service pups for 15-18 months while they learn to become service dogs. In partnership with Susquehanna Service Dogs, we created a Philadelphia-area puppy raising program. Interested in becoming a puppy raiser?
Raising the Bar In Service Dog Training
[Lead from the Front]
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides significant protection for people with service dogs. However, it does not ensure proper training standards for the dogs themselves. Team Foster ensures that our training partners are accredited by Assistance Dogs International, the gold-standard for service dog training.
