Lots of people talk about how difficult the transition back into civilian life is for our veterans. My wife and I were looking for ways to help. Alpha Bravo Canine is one organization that doesn't just talk. They help in a concrete tangible way. Helping this organization has been a rewarding and humbling experience. When you hear a veteran say from his heart that his service dog literally saved his life it makes it all worth it.

Aloha Bravo Canine has been a dream come true for my Dad and our family. There are not enough words to describe how amazing this organization is. The amount of time and love they share and brings others is truly a blessing. Seeing my Dad suffer from PTSD for such a long time with no positive changes it almost seemed impossible he would ever become happy again and learn to cope, until ABC entered his life!
Jen and the entire staff at ABC are truly miracle workers!
Oscar has only been in my Dad's life for a few short months but what a difference he has made. My Dad is happy, motivated and smiles again!

Thank you Jen and the ABC staff!!

Volunteering for the last 3 years with Alpha Bravo Canine has been an incredibly rewarding and humbling experience. The work that goes into training each of these dogs along with constant fundraising and reaching out to the veteran community is done by a dedicated 'family' that selflessly give up their time.
There is no reward greater than seeing a veteran with an ABC dog and hearing that our dogs have changed their life!!

As a volunteer 'puppy raiser' for the last year with Alpha Bravo Canine I cannot express enough what a wonderful organisation this is!
The volunteers in this nonprofit work tirelessly to give Veterans a dog that will change their life. The work that goes into training the puppies (and training them in the correct way) through to fund raising is constant, the dedicated group of individuals that make this happen are amazing!

This is an amazing organization. It's a win/win, for the dogs and vets. The vets were highly trained to do a job and the dogs are highly trained to take care of them. Truly a wonderful--and very powerful--organization. Well Done, Alpha Bravo Canine!

Where do I begin? I guess at the beginning. Over two years ago my youngest daughter told me about Alpha Bravo Canine and the wonderful program of training service dogs for vets suffering with PTSD. I blew her off because I did not need help. I could handle it on my own, after all I am a Marine......wrong......I could not handle it myself, I needed a friend. Along came my buddy Oscar. I cannot express in words what Oscar has brought into my life. He is at my side and his ability to know when I am having a difficult time is such a comfort to this old Mud Marine. Jen and her puppy raisers are unbelievable. So much of their time is devoted to the dogs. Working with Jen I can tell she is not in it for the business but she just loves what she does. Jen is truly an angel on earth. Thank you Jen for allowing me to be paired with Oscar.

Alpha Bravo Canine is doing a tremendous job in changing the lives of veterans. With heart and mission-driven leadership, the entire ABC organization from volunteers, to puppy raisers to partners goes the extra mile for those who have served. A worthy organization inspired to change the conversation about veteran health, reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness, and provide highly-skilled service dogs in a personalized way to support area veterans.

My family is a puppy raiser and has been involved with the program for 1-1/2 years. The dedication of Alpha Bravo Canine (ABC) to veterans and their needs is commendable. The organization is all about giving back to the Vets with PTSD or permanent brain injury. The program is extensive and the dogs are trained and nurtured by the puppy raising family and ABC. Our puppy can fetch pill containers, put pressure when needed, close cabinet doors, and been on many outings with the family. When it's time to turn our pup over to a deserving vet, I know we'll continue with the program because it's what we do now. I admire Jennifer Green for the support she gives to each and every puppy, family and Vet.

Selflessness by definition is "concern more with the needs and wishes of others than with one's own."
This is the basis for everything at Alpha Bravo Canine.
In two short years this organization is making a mark not only on the lives of veterans but on the community. With one dog already in service, five in training, and waiting on three more, Alpha Bravo Canine is just getting started.
It's a labor of love for the founders and the dedicated volunteers. I'm proud to be involved!

Alpha Bravo Canine is one of the most important nonprofits in the region. Founded by Jen Green the organization raises and provides service dogs to former military with PTSD. Jen is hands on with the training and every aspect of this organization. It costs upwards of $30,000 to $50,000 to purchase and raise a puppy before it is ready to be a service dog and Alpha Bravo does this at NO cost to the recipient. A genuine kindhearted founder who loves and respects the military and dogs alike. ANYTHING that can be done to raise funds for this organization should be done. It is REMARKABLE!

Becoming puppy raisers has been one of the most rewarding ways for us to give back. This program goes to great lengths to educate its volunteers, puppy raisers, and general public on what it means to raise and train a service dog. Not only does this program provide great service dogs to veterans in need, but they do it at no cost to the veteran. This takes a huge financial burden off of the veteran already in need of life changing assistance. To see these dogs learning and growing into their full potential is truly gratifying to know that we had a small part in enriching a veteran's life.

Founder, Jennifer Green works tirelessly to ensure the right dogs are brought into the program, that the right families are helping to raise and train the dogs and that each veteran will find their perfect support companion. Alpha Bravo Canine knows that our veterans have given enough, and that it’s time to give back to them.

I had gone to a couple fundraisers for Alpha Bravo, then started raising raffle baskets for their fundraisers. During the course of speaking to different companies for donations I met a woman with PTSD. She had a dog donated by Alpha Bravo. Listening to her story made me realize how important Alpha Bravo is to veterans. Her life was forever changed thanks to this special companion. Not only does Alpha do an amazing job, but they are truly needed by so many. I now help at booths, fundraisers, any way I can. What Alpha Bravo does is life changing and more valuable to veterans than you can ever imagine. I'm so proud to be a part of something so extraordinary.

This is a wonderful program that trains support dogs for veterans, and does not charge the veterans for the fully trained support dog! Many programs sort of train the dogs (many are poorly trained) and charge the veteran a fortune for a "partially trained dog". This program underwrites all of the costs, including 2 years of training so that the dogs are properly trained and can support a veteran who has a wide variety of support needs.

Alpha Bravo Canine is an amazing nonprofit that helps our equally amazing Veterans. As a mom of a Marine Corps Veteran, Jenn the Director of Training, knows that just because our soldiers come home, it does not mean that their fight is over. Sometimes, our warriors have an even tougher battle to fight and an enemy that they cannot fight on their own, this is where Alpha Bravo Canine comes in. Through the vigorous training that these dogs go through, not only with Jenn but also with their amazing Puppy Raising families, these dogs learn how to be a hero for our heroes. Veterans are matched with dogs to make sure that it is the right fit and then their Services Dogs go through even more training to tailor their skills to the specific needs of the Veteran that they will be serving. To make this even more incredible, this is all done with no cost to the Veteran. Please donate and help us help our heroes who so clearly need and deserve it.

Before linking up with Jennifer and Kevin of Alpha Bravo Canine, I had severe PTSD ( I still do) However: after being selected and paired with my amazing battle Buddy SD Lydia as I was their first pairing, my life has drastically changed for the better. I now walk out in public versus hiding in my house, I go to College full time without taking the many medications I was once prescribed to control anxiety and panic attack as my best friend senses my anxiety and intervenes by redirecting my attention to her and away from what ever is getting to me. At night when I suffer from insomnia and night terrors having her laying by my side has greatly improved my ability and quality of sleep. Jennifer has done an amazing job of training these dogs to helps us veterans deal with our injuries of war. Weather it be Physical or mental injuries they got it covered. After the assessment phase she test us out with different dogs until that magical moment that the dog and person click. From there Lydia and I trained to fit my disabilities for several months until she final came home for good to be my Battle buddy for life. There is nothing like it in this world and the fact that it does not cost us veterans one dime for this life enhancing gift is priceless. The team at Alpha Bravo Canine is committed to providing us veterans with a better chance at better quality of life where other services fall short. Please Donate to this wonderful organization as they can only do this solely by donations alone. I cold not bear to see them to be unable to fulfill tier mission. It has changed my life now please help change more veterans lives. Donate to a very important cause.

I had never heard of Alpha Bravo Canine until Phoebe and I started training classes at Tail Waggers Academy. That is when I met Jennifer Green, owner, and found out about Alpha Bravo Canine. Jenn is an awesome trainer and her dog Echo is proof of her hard work. Veterans with PTSD and/or TBI are eligible to adopt a service dog from Alpha Bravo Canine after the dog has gone through rigorous and lengthy training. The dogs are purchased at about 8 weeks of age, socialized and trained for up to 2 years. The cost to raise and train 1 dog is approximately $30,000.00. This is huge but so are the benefits to a veteran who served our country and can now do simple tasks such as going shopping. Volunteers are always needed to help with small things like helping at events all the way to raising and training a service dog. Please help support this small, hard working non-profit.

This is an amazing foundation that helps veterans that serve our country and return home and suffer from PTSD & TBI. It also helps dogs that need homes. So many of our veterans do not get the help they need and this program is at no cost to them. Alpha raises money to fund for the dogs in their care until they are ready to go into their new home to help a veteran. The comfort of a dog there to help them even with the simple things in everyday life is a relief to these soldiers
