WE HAVE A MISSION
Operation Delta Dog is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a mission
to rescue homeless dogs and train them to be service dogs
for veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD),
Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), Military Sexual Trauma (MST),
and related challenges.
Dogs wind up homeless in the State of Massachusetts every year
Veterans take their own lives in the United States everyday
Of our friends and neighbors are suffering with TBI, MST or PTSD
We want to improve those odds.
Our trainers find the very best canine candidates, rescue them from shelters, and train them for a new life filled with purpose and affection. Local veterans can participate in training without leaving their jobs or families and find relief from the debilitating symptoms of TBI, PTSD, MST and other challenges.
A note from our Executive Director
Dear OpDD Friends,
Well, summer seems to just be on fast forward as it hurtles toward fall! It could feel that way because we have been so busy here… I hope you are watching us on social media to see the amazing dogs that we have been rescuing at a rate higher than ever before! That is because we have more veterans than ever that need them. Our staff have been working tirelessly to continue to make these matches happen! As always, we do this at absolutely no charge to our veterans – it all happens thanks to our supporters like you. Right now, we could use some help! If you could help in any of the following ways, you will be a huge piece in making the next round of veteran and service dog matches a reality…
1. Supplies Needed
Our shelves are getting emptier much quicker because of the large amount of dogs we are rescuing. A quick trip to our Amazon or Chewy Wishlist would be so appreciated!
2. Upcoming Events
We have some amazing upcoming events that we would love to see you at!! On August 29th, we are holding our golf tournament and on September 10th we are hosting an evening of comedy, games, and fun…you do NOT want to miss it! You can sign up for both of these here: Upcoming Events
If you are unable to attend, we would love your help in other ways too! We are looking for great silent auction items… Do you have season tickets and would like to donate a game? Maybe a vacation getaway? Or maybe your family would like to donate a basket of fun items for our raffles? We would love to see what you come up with to make our silent auction table irresistible! Just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will connect with you.
As always, we are in need of donations that can go directly to our veterans and their service dog training. Thank you for anything you can give to help!
Enjoy the rest of your summer,
