PPP Service Dog in Training Chloe is working with her veteran Josh. Chloe and Josh are making such wonderful progress. They are the perfect example of what the Positive Pit Project wants to create in a team! Did you know that 22 veterans suffering from PTSD commit suicide each day? Our objective is help in our own small way to reduce that number. Many veterans with PTSD report feeling useless and have too much idle time on their hands. Many are unable to work. Placing a service dog with a veteran gives them something to get up in the morning for, builds their confidence as the dog progresses through training, and makes them feel safe because the dog always has their back.
Are you or do you know someone suffering from PTSD and want more information about our program? Please email [email protected] or call 337-298-0591 for more information.

“Even in times of trauma, we try to maintain a sense of normality until we no longer can. That, my friends, is called surviving. Not healing. We never become whole again … we are survivors. If you are here today… you are a survivor. But those of us who have made it thru hell and are still standing? We bare a different name: warriors.”
