Hi, my name is Shane Phillips. I am a veteran of the U.S. Army and a veteran law enforcement officer. 1995 started my daily challenges of dealing with PTSD. This has cost me relationships and lost time and opportunities with those closest to me.
For more than a year I have been searching for an outlet to obtain a service dog for PTSD. I have hit road block after road block in my journey. Just recently I was connected through an old friend with a trainer here in the Waco, TX area who selects, trains, and certifies service dogs. Sandy Wittliff has been a God send. She has offered assistance in choosing an animal, training, and certification at reduced costs to me. Personal experience with someone suffering from PTSD, she understands the importance of this type of animal and the positive impact they can have on the person in need, as well as their family.
I've always been a "do it myself" type of person. Saying that, this process has taught me to ask for help. So, I'm asking for help. A little or a lot. Anything and everything helps. My family is my purpose and I will do everything I can to take care of them and not take from them.
The process of selection, training, and certification of the animal takes approximately one year. Average costs vary from $1,000-$4,000 per animal. My dog will be a rescue animal because I firmly believe we all deserve second chances. If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask. I look forward to updating you all as we go through this journey together.
Regardless of your decision right now, thank you sincerely for reading, and thank you for caring enough to read.
