Supporting Rescue Dogs as well as Verteran and First Responders
PTSD Dogs Australia Ltd is a registered charity, fully approved by the Australian Charities & Not for Profit Commission with all donations $2.00 or more being tax deductible as approved by the Australian Tax Office.
All donations are directed to training and supplying Service Dogs with a cost of $35,000 to $40,000 per dog. We work with volunteers as much as possible and our constitution dictates that none of our board of directors are paid for their positions on the board.
With operating expenses rapidly approaching $500,000 per year and set to get even higher, we currently get no government funding so we really need your help to support our veterans and first responders.
Specialist dog trainers which are required for the high level task training to become a certified service dog can charge $75 per hour with each dog being trained on average 20 hours per week and training taking up to 8 months or more in some cases before they can be certified with certification costing another $1,000 and then re-certification every 3 years.
Once placed with their handler, each dog/handler team is supplied with a basic kit comprising of a crate, jacket with ID, collar, bowls for feed and water, leads and training accessories.
Remember you can specify where you wish your donations to go such as the “Sponsor a Dog” Fund, simply check the “I would like this donation to go to a specific fund” box and select where you would like it to go.
