Our Call to Action
Of our nearly 18 million veterans in the United States, an estimated 150,000 need a Public Access Service Dog, while others could benefit from a Non-Public Access Service Dog. It's our mission to leave no one who served our country behind.
What We Do
We provide access to approved dog training and community to Veterans based on their individual level of need. We support Veterans of all generations, branches, genders, and ages — regardless of disability.

Sierra Delta strives to be an innovative, national leader for the education, advocacy, promotion, and funding of the service dog industry for Military Veterans through the Life Buddy Program.
We increase access for all Veterans to benefit from a well-trained dog, or Life Buddy, while clearing the path for those with the greatest need to receive the assistance exclusive to a Public Access Service Dog.
We provide Veterans with ongoing support through community centered around strength and the shared love of dogs.
Provide Unbiased Information - With our military background and expertise, we provide Veterans with one-on-one guidance and recommend best-fit scenarios unique to their specific needs.
Provide Dog-Training - We're dedicated to providing Veterans with the invaluable physical and emotional benefits that only well-trained dogs can provide.
Facilitate Community - Sierra Delta has built an incredible community of Veterans and Veteran-Supporters that engage with each other across several channels, such as the Buddy Barker on the Life Buddy App.

"When people ask me, what does my service dog do for me, my common response is he saved my life. A service dog is about the truest form of medication and therapy that you can get."
