Do you meet AVSDA's admission requirements? Take a look at what you'll need before filling out our Veteran Questionnaire, below:
Letter of Referral from a Mental Healthcare Provider
You will be requesting a letter from your doctor, which MUST STATE that you have a current PTS diagnosis, that you are currently in treatment for PTS, that a Service Dog is medically necessary, and that you are therapeutic enough to participate in a 52-week dog training program. You don't need the letter yet, but it will be a requirement.
Please submit your letter to: email@example.com
DD214 with Honorable Discharge
This is solely for proof of service. Please submit a copy of your DD214 (with your social security number blocked out) to: firstname.lastname@example.org
