Organizational Overview"The Battle Buddy Foundation (TBBF), is a nonprofit corporation registered with the Ohio Secretary of State. It operates as a tax exempt organization under IRS Section 501(c)(3), application pending. Individual and corporate contributions are tax exempt as allowed by law."
The Battle Buddy Foundation is the only national non-profit organization founded by veterans with the combined mission of assisting other veterans in the acquisition of psychiatric and mobility service dogs, providing a network of peer support and activity, and promoting education and awareness of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and the current veteran suicide epidemic. The most recent and comprehensive study completed and published by the Veterans Administration in 2012 indicates an average of 22 veterans are committing suicide every single day.
“Founded by Veterans to Serve Veterans,” The Battle Buddy Foundation (TBBF) exists to effect long term and tangible change in the lives of veterans of all eras. TBBF is dedicated to making a positive, healing impact in the lives of injured veterans by providing psychiatric and mobility service dogs at no cost. We provide an opportunity for veterans to “continue the mission” through personal responsibility in our service dog program, and to give back through volunteer work and community events. We provide a channel for veteran and family support through our Veteran Peer Program and National Community Veteran Resources. TBBF is dedicated to educating the public and corporate sectors regarding the issues currently facing our nation’s veterans.
TBBF Headquarters is located at 8859 Cincinnati-Dayton Rd STE 202, West Chester, OH 45069.
