Stiggy’s Dogs is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides our military veterans living with PTSD and TBI another method of healing through service and companion dogs. Through our programs, we seek to help heal the wounds of war, provide families with new beginnings and raise awareness about the potential of shelter and rescue dogs everywhere.

All of our dogs are rescued. The come from rescue organizations, shelters, animal control agencies and humane societies. We believe that many mixed breed and rescue dogs can make wonderful service dogs and provide a mutually beneficial relationship with a veteran living with PTSD and/or TBI.

By doing this, we are rescuing one to rescue another.
