Got Your Six Support Dogs, a nonprofit organization that helps veterans and first responders suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder by providing specially trained PTSD service dogs at no cost, has received an $45,000 grant award from The Boeing Company as part of their Community Engagement “Our Heroes: Veterans and Their Families” program.
The grant will be used to cover the training costs for two (2) services dogs. The dogs, Captain and Gunner, who received their names from the Boeing Veteran Group, are progressing well with their training. They are in line to be placed with their veteran/first responder in September 2020.
“Got Your Six is extremely grateful to The Boeing Company for this grant award. We are honored to partner with The Boeing Company in our efforts to help those men and women, who have sacrificed so much for us, to lead a better and more fulfilling life,” said Nicole Lanahan, Executive Director of Got Your Six Support Dogs.
