22 Veterans and Service Members Commit Suicide Everyday Due to the Effects of PTSD, TBI, and/or MST. We’re on a Mission to Change That!

Service Dog Training Program

Solely Dedicated to Veterans from Any Era, Any Conflict.
Absolutely NO CHARGE!

I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say, “because of you, I didn’t give up.”

Our Mission

To give veterans and active military a second chance at life by honoring and empowering those with post traumatic stress (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and military sexual trauma (MST) through the experience of training and caring for their own service dog.

Who we are

We’re a fierce family of veterans, service members, civilians & service dogs.

Unlike many other service dog organizations that only serve post 9/11 veterans, we serve ALL United States Armed Force Veterans and SMs. Regardless of the conflict in which you fought or the era that you served; if you meet the simple, qualifying criteria, you are welcome here.
K9 Partners for Patriots is helping veterans with PTSD, TBI and/or MST trade a life of isolation for one of socialization, improved family relationships, and quality of life. They’re regaining their independence and sense of mastery as they reintegrate back into society with our unique approach to service dogs.
Service dogs are making a significant and life changing difference in the lives of veterans struggling daily with service related post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and/or Military Sexual Trauma (MST).

Veterans with PTSD

Less than 50% of veterans and service members ever seek help.

overcoming battles together


I was challenged, engaged and felt that I was part of their caring community.

K9 Partners for Patriots has helped veterans like myself learn to live again. I have to say that it is so much more than a program for me. It is family.

Shawn C.
U.S. Army Veteran

I highly recommend K9 Partners for Patriots as a program that would be very beneficial to any veteran requiring a service dog.

The time spent in the program has been worthwhile my time and travel. I’ve traveled from Ocala to Brooksville...

Thank you K9PFP. You've given me the ability to slowly heal day by day by having a true battle buddy by my side.
