Serving Military and First Responders and those struggling with mobility issues in Oklahoma
Story provided by Brush Creek Service and Therapy Dog Center, Inc.
Brush Creek Service and Therapy Dog Center, Inc., a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, is looking to serve Oklahomans by providing service dogs to the Veteran and First Responder Communities and to those wrestling with mobility issues. Service dogs can help mitigate the symptoms of PTSD and provide strength and balance to those who need it. The organization will have therapy dogs available to visit local facilities that could benefit from some dog companionship, as well as have an owner-trainer program to help people train their own prospective service dogs, therapy dogs, or emotional support animals.
Director, Tracy Berg, described the organization saying, “We are a group of compassionate, experienced animal lovers that desire to help make life better, easier, and more fulfilling for those struggling in our community. Our vision, currently, is to serve the military, veteran, and first responder communities with service dogs or visiting therapy dogs, train and place mobility service dogs for those with strength, balance and other mobility issues, and use therapy dogs in any facilities locally that would benefit from the unconditional love of a dog. We will evaluate other needs as they present themselves to us and look to branch out in the future.”
As a non-profit organization, Brush Creek Service and Therapy Dog Center, Inc. relies solely on donations and community involvement to operate.
