2018 was another good year, and we’re so thankful you were a part of it. It’s with great pride we share some highlights of the year: We placed 6 expertly trained assistance dogs with 6 veterans; changing 12 lives. Our community helped raise almost $200,000 in revenue, a 20% increase from last year.

Together, we can help break the stigma of mental health and to help veterans return to a peaceful, productive and hopeful life.

2017 Annual Report

2017 was a year of progress. We expanded our volunteer force and installed a volunteer coordinator. We now have a custom
database that tracks individual dog behavior, training logs for the dogs, handler training, cost per dog, and volunteer hours per dog.

Believet is gaining momentum to help to reduce and prevent veteran suicide; every veteran that comes through our door receives the family treatment. At this time our program is still 100% free.
