In August 2019, Jason Horn spoke to the Puppies for Parole and VFA (Veterans of Farmington and Associates) groups at the Farmington Correctional Center about the Got Your Six Support Dog Program. This organization provides service dogs to veterans and first responders who struggle with PTSD, at no cost to the recipient. According to their website https://gotyoursixsupportdogs.org/ Got Your Six Support Dogs started due to the need of veterans and first-responders requesting PTSD service dogs when all other methods of treatment have failed. A service dog can provide healing companionship and life-altering benefits to an individual suffering from PTSD. Service dogs are trained to:

  • Alert to Anxiety
  • Recognize and Interrupt Harmful Behaviors
  • Wake Its Owner From Night Terrors
  • Provide a Sense of Security and Combat Hypervigilance
  • Reteach Emotions, Such as Love and Affection

The selected service dogs are trained by certified trainers for approximately one year and then matched with an applicant. The pairings occur over a 10-day period. During this period, the recipient also attends a daily trauma resiliency/suicide prevention course led by a licensed therapist. This training process and the dog is provided to the recipient at no cost.

Both Puppies for Parole and VFA were impressed by the service this organization is providing to veteran’s, first responders, and the local communities. The programs recently donated a combined total of $750 to Got Your Six Support Dogs and plan to make additional donations in the future.

The FCC Personnel Club would like to say thank you for all that attended. Also, they wanted staff to know that their hard work does not go unnoticed and thank you for their service. If there are any suggestions, ideas or questions for the Personnel Club, they have asked for you to please feel free to contact them.

AK94U participated in the Health Fair held at Mineral Area College on April 27. Dog handlers made more than 100 dog bandannas to be given away at the fair. The organization donated two gift baskets filled with dog supplies, which were given away. A member of RJO also painted a beautiful portrait of a dog, which was given away to a lucky participant. We were able to showcase Dirk, a current P4P dog, who is still available for adoption.He is a one year old Catahoula mix, who gets along great with everyone. He is a high-energy dog, so he would be best suited with an active family. While at the fair, Dirk was able to demonstrate some of the skills he has learned while in the program and we were able to educate those in attendance on the proper way to greet a dog, as well as general dog safety tips.
