In the heart of Colorado lies Freedom Service Dogs (FSD), a Denver-based nonprofit founded in 1987, dedicated to purpose-breeding and custom training service dogs, professional therapy dogs, and skilled companions for veterans and first responders with PTSD and traumatic brain injuries, young people with autism, individuals with limited mobility, and others providing mental health and crisis support. With a Freedom Service Dog by their side, individuals experience a renewed sense of hope and are empowered to live lives filled with possibility. FSD puppies with a purpose are much more than assistance dogs—they’re everyday game changers for those they serve.

By expanding their services to first responders, FSD is making a lasting difference for more heroes who have served our country and communities.

  • FSD Service Dogs assist first responders with PTSD by interrupting flashbacks, waking from nightmares, and creating space in public to reduce anxiety.
  • FSD Professional Therapy Dogs provide therapeutic support in places like police departments, fire stations, hospitals, and schools.
  • FSD Skilled Companion Dogs provide loving comfort, friendship, and joy to first responders and their families at home.
