The VA estimates that a sobering 500,000 troops who served in Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) and Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) have been diagnosed with PTSD. Trained service dogs can help combat PTSD by providing an essential source of security, trust, and connection..

Believet™ is committed to helping veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and military sexual trauma (MST) return to civilian life with dignity and independence.
