At K9s For Warriors we save warriors and rescue dogs. Some are veterans, some active duty, and all are heroes who have served in the military. All of our warriors suffer from Post-traumatic Stress Disability (PTSD) or traumatic brain injury (TBI).
My son, a veteran K9 police officer, worked as a contractor for the Department of the Army as a bomb dog handler. He served two tours in Iraq and returned home with PTSD. This really hit home.
After two years of research on canine assistance for PTSD we decided the best way we could help these deserving warriors was to start a nonprofit organization. We train and give service canines to warriors (AT NO COST TO THEM) and assist them in returning to civilian life with dignity and independence.
It has been documented that service canines, when properly trained, are a profound alternative for recovery from PTSD and TBI.
It is our duty, honor, and privilege to serve the men and women of our military.
They fought for our tomorrows and we intend to fight for theirs.
