PAWS for PTSD Gala
One Night to Change Lives

One night to change lives
Join us for a night to not only change, but save lives.
Courageous Companions is proud to host our second annual PAWS for PTSD Gala Fundraiser. This night is meant to inspire, engage and educate everyone on the harrowing work of our service dogs as well as the stories of the heroes who have them.
A fully trained service dog costs $20,000. An individual who receives a service dog has their world opened up for them. What were once barriers become opportunities to live a full and meaningful life. We want to raise enough money to train and place two dogs for deserving heroes.
Join us for a delicious dinner, silent auction and inspiring entertainment all in support of Courageous Companions. Help change our heroes lives. We can’t wait to see you there.
About Courageous Companions
What Is Courageous Companions?
Our mission is to provide top quality service dogs to help military veterans and First Responders live full and meaningful lives if they have been impacted by physical, sensory and/or psychological injuries from their service. We are a dedicated group of volunteers that run this program, which is why every dollar donated goes directly to funding the programs for participants that have helped them regain their independence.
As a national charity, we have volunteers, program participants, and donors from all across Canada. We are so grateful for the wonderful support of those that believe in our program, and understand the true value of a Service Dog.
Some of our program participants are very vocal about how their Service Dog K9 and this program has saved their lives.
We thank all military personnel and ﬁrst responders for their service. Many of the volunteers at Courageous Companions have experienced the trauma of operational injuries in service to our great nation and are therefore in a unique position to understand the challenges of stress injuries.
If you are a military veteran or a first responder who may be suffering
physical, sensory and/or physiological operational injuries such as Post Traumatic Stress Injuries, we encourage you to reach out to Courageous Companions.
