2019 Paws For PTSD Gala

This year marks Courageous Companions’ second annual Paws for PTSD Gala.

Courageous Companions is a registered Canadian charity that helps to pair military veterans and first responders with top quality service dogs to help those living with an Operational Stress Injury (OSI), live their best lives.

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.

Join us for a delicious dinner provided by Elegant Affairs Catering, accompanied by the musical comedy stylings of Matt Day and a silent auction that has more than you're expecting!

Our goal is to raise enough money to train and house two service dogs in the coming year! We will meet that goal when we raise $40,000.

All of the proceeds from the event go directly back into Courageous Companions.

Help change our heroes lives.

We can’t wait to see you there.

Thank you for stopping by the Courageous Companions website.

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.
