The Petplan Charitable Trust (PPCT) has awarded grants totalling £25,000 to Service Dogs UK.
The charity trains and provides PTSD Assistance Dogs, selected carefully from rescue, to support members of the Armed Forces and Emergency Services (including Coast Guard & RNLI & UKSAR) who have Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Over the past 3 years, Petplan Charitable Trust has provided grants towards the training of both dogs and their new owners.
“They recognised early on that what we were doing was important. They helped the charity to grow and that kind of support for a start-up charity is so precious,” comments Judith Broug, Service Dogs UK.
“We truly appreciate the fantastic support that has helped transform the lives of veterans and rescue dogs.”
