Our Mission

Battle Buddies is committed to providing service dogs to veterans suffering from PTSD and traumatic brain injuries. Our mission is to help veterans regain their physical and emotional independence.


“An Average of 20 veterans die by suicide each day.”

— Department of Veterans Affairs’ Office for Suicide Prevention


Battle Buddies was started in 2012 by John and Jo Anne Creed. John served in the Marines and their son Ryan in the Army. After training mobility dogs for several years, the Creeds saw a need in South Carolina for service dogs for veterans suffering with PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injuries. Our veterans are suffering with physical and emotional wounds and deserve our help. Battle Buddies mission is to train service dogs of the highest quality to restore them back to independence physically and emotion
