OSI-CAN has a program created to provide assistance to those who require the assistance of a service dog in overcoming the long term effects of Occupational Stress Injuries / Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and other related issues.



Operational Stress Injury/Post Traumatic Stress sometimes comes with crippling fears and anxieties that make it impossible for some people to go out in public. With the support of a service dog, we can return this freedom to people living with OSI/PTSD, and that spells RECOVERY.

Service dogs are used to ensure their handler’s safety and health. Additionally, they can restore the ability to perform routines and activities without incident or problem.


OSI-CAN provides assistance for those who are in our target demographic. The acquisition and training cost is approximately $25,000 - $30,000 per team.
