Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) - Operation K9

The Semaphore Port Adelaide Sub-Branch of the RSL have started a fundraising campaign to support the great work of 4 Paws K9 Care Packages in support of Operation K9.

Operation K9 is a joint programme of the RSL and The Royal Society for the Blind to train Assistance Dogs for Defence Force Veterans suffering PTSD.

It has taken Governments and the People of the world far too long to recognise the psychological effect of war, training for war, on our service men and women. The program is having a significant effect on sufferers of the dreadful condition and is well worth our support. 

The cost of training just one dog is in the order of $50k to $60k. Every dollar raised will go directly to supporting this project - please get on board and support this great initiative.
