An Extra Set of Eyes

As a U.S. Army veteran who served in Iraq, Kristian Gaasland suffers from acute anxiety and chronic migraines, making it difficult to be in crowded places. Even an ordinary visit to the grocery store can trigger panic.

Believet™ founder Sam Daly worked together with Kristian and Claire, an energetic yellow lab who gives Kristian the feeling of security that he needs to carry out essential errands.

A Real Need

The veterans we serve come from the most emotionally and physically extreme environments imaginable. The survival instincts that served them well in combat often remain with them; when they come home, they may miss the sense of connection with their brothers and sisters in arms.

Believet™ service dogs provides an essential source of security, affection and connection for veterans.
