You can still help us reach our goal!

Thank you to everyone for participating in our first ever Step Up For Vets Virtual Walk/Run/Cycle and helping us raise over $70,000!


There's still time to help us reach $100,000 so that we can train a record number of Life Buddies for Veterans this year.

Our fundraiser will be open for donations through the end of June.



Responding To A Critical Need

Millions of Veterans are struggling with engaging in the communities they sacrificed so much to protect. Custom-trained dogs that provide a service and encourage community engagement make this experience better.

Sierra Delta has developed an innovative way to remove the barriers Veterans face in this process. We’ve re-envisioned how to support the Veteran and their dog, so the well-being of both only increases over their lifelong bond.

The Service Dog Program

Traditional service dog program for Veterans in need of highly-skilled service dogs and full access anywhere.

The Life Buddy Program

Custom-trained service dog programs to meet individual Veteran needs and lifestyles with access where dogs are welcome.

Our Programs

Sierra Delta connects Service Dogs and Life Buddies with Military Veterans.

Veteran Application

Interested in understanding if a service dog is right for you? You've come to the right place.


Give today and impact the life of a Veteran. Every contribution counts and we appreciate your support.

"These dogs are serving a life-changing, life-saving purpose."


What We Do

We enable Veterans and dogs to be their best selves with companionship and community by utilizing a strengths-based approach to assist Veterans as they obtain their life buddy and work to empower themselves.

Partnering to Empower the Team Leader

We know the greatest success comes from guidance, training, resources, and community. So we’ve partnered with My Buddy’s Place to power the Life Buddy Training Program, Life Buddy Program App, and Rook’s Place, an online pet store. With a complete circle of care, a lifelong bond can thrive!

Thank you to our corporate sponsors
