The average cost of a PTSD service dog is between $15,000-$20,000. This puts these valuable dogs out of the reach for most of the veterans that need them the most. Paws of Grace: Service Dogs for Veterans is dedicated to helping as many veterans as possible obtain dogs that can change their life at no cost to the veteran. Elena (Veteran and Founder) trains the dogs directly and hosts them at her own home during the initial training. If she was to charge for this training she would be paid between $10,000 and $15,000! Paws of Grace depends completely on donations from individuals like you, even $5 can help!
