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.

Sheep Dog - Impact Assistance

Sheep Dog Impact Assistance has successfully held their first Outdoor Adventure of 2018. SSgt Robert Houser, Traven Cross, Lt. Keith Czechanski, Topeka Fire Dept, Andy Seal (USAF) and Cpl. Jason Richardson (USMC) ventured into the icy and below freezing terrain in Pocahontas, AR, January 15-17, 2018, in search of pheasant and skeet shooting. The group of Sheep Dogs were welcomed generously and with open arms by Arthur Lloyd of Fallin Feathers.

With the support of Fallin Feathers each Sheep Dog was provided ammunition, firearms and licenses to maximize the amount of fun and camaraderie. These men have experienced similar life circumstances and an opportunity to bond with like minded individuals is key to progress and recovery. Thank you Fallin Feathers for your support and joining our cause to help those that have helped us.
