SERVICE DOG PROGRAM
Depending on the source, 20-22 veterans commit suicide per day. Many of these veterans would have benefited from alternative medicine such as certified service dogs. 4 The Fallen is dedicated to providing service trained canines to Heroes suffering from Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The goal of the Service Dog Program is to empower our Heroes to return to an independent and high quality lifestyle.
In partnership with the Patriot Service Dog Foundation and Northwest Battle Buddies, 4 The Fallen assists Heroes with PTSD in receiving trained and certified service dogs at no cost to the heroes. For more information on our Service Dogs Partners, please go to Patriotic Service Dog Foundation and Northwest Battle Buddies.
The goal of the Prosthetic Program is to help Heroes who require high impact prosthetic devices. Amputee service members, and veterans are usually provided with prosthetic devices that are very limited in functionality. These devices are not designed for active lifestyles which is where 4 The Fallen steps in and ensures that the Heroes receive them.
In partnership with Davidson Prosthetics, 4 The Fallen ensures there is no financial burden placed on the Heroes and ensures they receive a high impact prosthesis at no cost to them. This program ensures our Heroes live a more active lifestyle often participating in athletic events or working in physically required industries.
