Veteran and Service Dog
Companions for Life logo

COMPANIONS FOR LIFE is a program with two goals—establishing a training program similar to The Big House to Your House that teaches Veterans new skills, and partnering the specially-trained service dogs with individuals who need physical or emotional support. 

On average, service dogs can cost between $8,000–$40,000, which isn’t affordable for most of us. Through The Big House to Your House and Companions for Life programs, service companions are paired with candidates for an adoption fee of only $150. 

Program Highlights
  • Training facilities are ADA compliant, equipped with elevators and handicapped accessibility 

  • Canines learn to work with the Veteran in ways that help manage the owner’s disability, whether it be physical or emotional
