Patriot Service Dogs (PSD) is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to pairing well-trained service dogs with veterans free-of-charge. Any honorably discharged veteran with a physical or mental disability is eligible to apply--we do not favor any specific era of service or require veterans to be combat wounded.

PSD was founded in 2009 by Susan Bolton, Julie Sanderson, and five other dedicated volunteers and has grown to over 100 active volunteers. We are located in Central Florida but place dogs throughout the United States. If you would like to join our team, we have many volunteer opportunities available. If you would like apply for one of our dogs, please fill out an application and mail it in!


There is no donation too big or small.  We value both monetary donations and training items.


Veterans receive a professionally trained and socialized service dog that will help them regain independence and change their life forever.


Any honorably discharged veteran is eligible to apply for a Patriot Service Dog.

"Bradley came into my life just over a year ago, but it seems like much longer than that. Bradley is full of energy and loves to help me out in any way he can. Bradley's specific training to my needs allows him to help me live a more functional life. There are certain things that I did not understand if I would be able to do again, but I found out with Bradley I can do them. He has a bond with me that a person nor a material item can provide. He is a big ball of energy, but when it's time to get into "Cape," he turns into my superhero. I am truly grateful for Patriot Service Dogs and the legacy they are passing on every year to help support wounded veterans like myself. You have touched me and my family's lives forever, and I couldn't imagine life without my buddy (Bradley). For that, I am truly grateful."
