Service dogs help military veterans suffering from PTSD in ways that other therapies cannot. That’s why our Service Dog Salute campaign is once again focused on supporting the lives and training of more service dogs — so that every veteran in need has an opportunity to benefit from this unique bond.

Service Dogs Change Lives

See how service dogs transform the lives of veterans and their families.


Thanks to Laramie, Sergio no longer has to miss out on important family milestones.


With Katie’s help, David is able to be the
hands-on father he wants to be for his two girls.


Finnegan made Ethan’s life worth living again, much to the amazement of his family.


Dog Chow® understands the important role that service dogs can play in the lives of veterans. That’s why we’re on pace to donate more than $600,000 to organizations that positively impact military veterans, service dogs, and their families.

We’re on a mission to help America’s military heroes find canine heroes of their own. Proceeds from specially-marked bags will go directly towards helping match rescue dogs with veterans experiencing PTSD and other challenges.*

*From 9/1/2019 to 11/1/2019, Nestlé Purina PetCare Company will donate five cents from each purchase of specially-marked bags of Dog Chow Complete Adult to
Tony La Russa’s Animal Rescue Foundation (ARF), up to $100,000.
