Jen and her son Kevin have founded such an amazing organization to give back to veterans. I have worked with Jen on many occasions to assist with training the service dogs as well as my own dog. She is extremely knowledgeable training the dogs whether they are a service dog or just a family pet. It is amazing to see how moods and attitudes change when being around these wonderful dogs. They serve a great purpose to those who have given their all!

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.

What a beautiful non profit. Jen and her crew work so hard for the veterans who have come home from serving. She puts her all into training these pups and won’t let them go unless they are a perfect match. She not only is saving lives but making the lives of our veterans so much better. Thank you Jen, we appreciate everything you do.

Alpha Bravo Canine is a caring and compassionate organization. They provide a much needed service for our men and women who have served our country. The service dogs receive excellent training from Jennifer Green and are raised in loving homes during training. These wonderful animals are provided free of charge to veterans. I donate to this non profit because it is way of saying "thank you" to our veterans.

Trajning service dogs and helping veterans, it doesn't get much better than that! Actually it does, there is no charge at all for a disabled vet. Alpha Bravo Canine offers so much and asks for nothing in return.

I have volunteered with this organization and I love what they do. Jennifer is very patient with the entire training process with both the human and dog. She is amazing at what she does. You definitely feel like part of the family with the entire group. It's amazing that everything they do is free to veterans. I have so much respect for them

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.

A dedicated and passionate group that is breaking ground in Philadelphia as the only non-profit organization of its kind there.
Born out of personal experience, they are working hard to help others battling PTSD and other service related brain injuries.
A dog can change how you see the world, this is never more true when you see a service dog at work!

They go above and beyond any organization as far as training service dogs for veterans. There is no cost to the veteran, everything is done in-house, and the overall customer care, and experience is top notch.

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
