“We are honored to be named a 2021 Top-Rated Nonprofit,” says Samantha Steinmann, Development Coordinator at Got Your Six Support Dogs. “We are proud of our accomplishments this year, including, pairing ten veterans and first responders with dogs in October, and beginning an obedience training program for the public.”

The Top-Rated Nonprofit Award is based on the rating and number of reviews that Got Your Six Support Dogs received from volunteers, donors, and aid recipients. “Got Your Six has been a continuous line of support for me and my dog. The road to healing never stops and they have been by my side every step of the way. The friendships and unconditional love they give has been a major part of my healing and reconnecting with my wife and kids,” says one past recipient.
