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 individual’s disability.
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.
At Southern Cross Service Dogs, our mission of providing exceptional service dogs to individuals with disabilities is made possible by the dedication and support of our incredible volunteers. By joining our pack, you have the opportunity to make a real impact in the lives of service members and contribute to their increased independence and well-being.
