SERVICE DOG ACQUISITION
OSI-CAN has a service dog program created to help members who are suffering from long-term Operational Stress Injury (OSI), PTSD and other related issues.
Operational Stress Injury/Post Traumatic Stress sometimes comes with crippling fears and anxieties that make it impossible for them to go out in public. With the support of a service dog we can return this freedom to OSI/PTSD sufferers, and that spells RECOVERY.
Service dogs are used to ensure their handler’s safety and health. Additionally, they can restore the ability to perform routines and activities without incident or problem.
OSI-CAN provides financial aid for those who are in our target demographic. The acquisition and training cost per dog is approximately $25,000.
