“Grow From Here” Program

LifeLine Service Dogs is dedicated to addressing the multi-faceted needs of our veteran community. This initiative offers temporary housing solutions to homeless veterans while supporting their mental health journey.


Our Mission

We owe a debt of gratitude to our men and women who’ve served our country Heroes of combat who have returned wounded both physically and psychologically. To those that experience daily and sometimes unimaginable trauma on the front lines as First Responders. We honor our Active Duty who stand for us at the ready to defend our freedoms and this great Nation. We train for the Gold Star Families/Military Families who sacrifice losses unimaginable, or who pray for the safe return of their sons and daughters. We took on a mission of hope and independence for each and every Veteran,First Responder, Family or Child navigating often times a life threatening illness, who reaches out to LifeLine Service Dogs. Scientifically proven to benefit person’s struggling with PTSD and other medical illnesses we strive everyday to make their lives whole through the incredible connection between a human and a dog.

LifeLine was founded by a Native American Woman and Choctaw Tribal Member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma and sitting currently as the Founder/Executive Director. Members of the founder’s own family, having returned home from WWII and Vietnam suffered from PTSD. The impact it made on her life lead to the formation of LifeLine Service Dogs and her dedication to everyone of our Veterans. LifeLine Service Dogs is the careful, planned breeding program of and for service dogs for the past 30 years.

The Impact Your Support Makes

Recent studies by Purdue  verify the cost involved in training a Service Dog at roughly $50,000.00 for each Service Dog placed. LifeLine SD goals for each year are to train and place 20 task trained service dogs to our qualified applicants, again at no cost to them. Your support enables us to meet with our Veterans, often traveling a few hundred miles to do so, as well as providing for all of the training and cost and care for each service dog in training in addition to building and adding housing enrichment and improvements. We cannot do this without you and your generosity, we truly appreciate you.
