K9s For Warriors saves both warriors and rescue dogs. The program serves our warriors with service-connected Post-traumatic Stress Disability (PTSD) traumatic brain injury (TBI) and/or military sexual trauma, which can be deadly disorders. A trained rescue dog is paired with a warrior and the two meet for two weeks of training together at one of two facilities for 21 days. Their stay, training and meals are provided at no cost.
Every 65 minutes a veteran commits suicide. A disturbing and sobering statistic. K9s For Warriors is reducing veteran suicide and helping our warriors return to a life of dignity and independence. Service canines, professionally trained, are a profound alternative for recovery from PTSD and TBI. K9s for Warriors is the largest provider of Service Dogs for disabled American veterans.
