Our Missions

Disaster Response Missions

This is what SDIA was founded on, and continues to be our primary continued service opportunity. When a natural disaster strikes, teams of skilled Sheep Dogs and other volunteers are deployed to provide immediate “impact assistance” to devastated communities.

Teams provide help through tree and debris removal, muck-out operations, covering roofs & windows, distributing food & water, and other meaningful tasks.

Outdoor Adventures

Disasters are not on a schedule, so we looked for other ways to keep our Sheep Dogs engaged each month – opportunities that would provide them with new challenges and foster camaraderie.

The Outdoor Adventures program accomplishes this, and includes hunting & fishing trips, obstacle course races, skydiving and scuba diving. For our sponsored Sheep Dogs (those injured in combat or the line of duty), these adventures present them with challenges that test their rehabilitation progress, restore independence and self-confidence, and reengage them in living life to the fullest. These opportunities for camaraderie and peer support are vital to inspiring a positive state of mind and perspective.

Holiday Assistance

The holidays are a wonderful, happy time for most, but for those dealing with financial hardships, medical issues, loss, or other troubles, the holidays can be especially difficult. Through our holiday programs, we are able to assist these struggling Sheep Dog families in two ways.

Through our Thanksgiving Outreach struggling Sheep Dog families are provided with a full, traditional Thanksgiving meal, and through our Christmas Outreach the children of struggling Sheep Dog families are adopted and each are given gifts of toys, clothing and other necessities.

SDIA members give back by volunteering their time to pack and deliver items to these families, and assisted Sheep Dogs can better enjoy the holidays.
