What We Do

Javelan, Inc. provides service dogs to our nation's heroes, enabling their life and independence. Javelan provides funding for training service dog teams (handler/dog) for military veterans and first responders regardless of ability to pay.
This program creates a scenario where everyone wins because multiple lives are saved. The dogs are given a purpose in a loving, forever home and the veterans quality of life is drastically improved with the medical assistance and by the healing power of their new canine partner.

Interesting Info

Currently there are over seventy five teams of vets/first responders and service dogs in Omaha.
We are supported solely by private donations, with each team costing $3500.
Our goal is to expand to outstate Nebraska as needed.
