ALWAYS
BESIDE YOU

The overarching goal of Southern Cross Service Dogs is to provide well-trained dogs that exemplify the motto Always Beside You. Service dogs bestow unconditional love, offer steadfast support, provide unwavering companionship, and perform specific tasks to help mitigate an individualโ€™s disability.

ALWAYS BESIDE YOU

The Southern Cross
Service Dogs Impact

As 1 in 3 Veterans experience substantial post-combat mental health challenges, service dogs become the bedrock for veterans to cope with post-combat challenges, re-engage in the community, manage emotional trauma, and reduce post-traumatic stress (PTS) symptomatology.ย
