To give veterans and active military a second chance at life by honoring and empowering those with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury and Military Sexual Trauma through the experience of training and caring for their own service dog.
I want to inspire people. I want someone to look at me and say, “because of you, I didn’t give up.”
PTSD BY THE NUMBERS
Due to the stigma surrounding PTSD, Less than 50% of veterans and service members ever seek help.
PTSD can have severe and devastating effects for the serving military personnel who are currently diagnosed, but the real number is significantly higher; over 93% of service members are ashamed or embarrassed about their mental health problems, and PTSD continues to be an emotional injury that really is the silent enemy for today’s troops.
PTSD IN U.S. CONFLICTS
While these numbers are staggering, they only represent the veteran/service member population that have been diagnosed with PTSD.

Service Dog Team Spotlight
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.
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...
