Alpha Bravo Canine’s mission is to raise, train and donate trained service dogs to U.S military veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and other combat related disabilities.
Government studies estimate that 22 U.S. military veterans commit suicide every day.
This mother and son team decided to take on this mission, and to help make a difference for other veterans suffering from these mental-health related issues.
Alpha Bravo Canine, a non-profit (501c3) organization based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, teams service dogs with US veterans suffering from debilitating medical and psychological problems as a result of their active combat duty. It is estimated that twenty percent of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or depression. Also, an alarming average of 22 veterans commit suicide every day here in the United States, that’s 8,030 in just one year.
Alpha Bravo Canine was founded by a mother and son team to help the local community of veterans. Jennifer Green, CPDT-KA is a certified dog trainer and Army wife, and her son Kevin Daly, USMC was deployed to Afghanistan twice with the 1st Battalion 8th Marine Regiment. Upon Kevin’s return home, they decided to combine their knowledge and experience of dog training and post deployment struggles to tackle these growing problems, and help to lower the suicide rates of US veterans by providing emotional and physical support with trained service dogs.
Alpha Bravo Canine believes in helping these brave warriors, who fought for our country’s freedom, by giving back to them.
Providing these veterans a trained service dog. A fully trained service dog from puppy to graduated dog can cost approximately $25,000-30,000 for up to the two year time frame. Everything we do is – free of charge – A service dog will make a huge difference in their lives!
