Helping You Thrive
Overcome mobility challenges and trauma with a loving dog by your side.
We train service dogs for veterans so these men and women can overcome mobility obstacles and find a sense of security if they're living with PTSD.
We can help you feel independent and hopeful again.
Military men and women make incredible sacrifices for our country, but they sometimes return home with life-altering injuries, or memories of tragedies they experienced.
If you’re a veteran with a mobility issue and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), you may not feel like you have much (if any) control over your situation. But an ICAN service dog can provide support.
Your dog will receive training that’s specific to your individual needs.
A service dog can impact your recovery in ways you never thought possible. A veteran assistance dog can interrupt a nightmare, alert you if you’re showing signs of anxiety, and give you a sense of peace as you heal from your trauma.
Whether you simply need mobility assistance, or you’re also struggling to overcome PTSD, a service dog can help you transition back to civilian life, get around with confidence, and work through injuries or anxiety.
