Service Dogs for Veterans
Uniting Veterans and Rescues for Independence
We offer hope and support to our honorable veterans who are battling PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury, and Military Sexual Trauma. Our commitment is to provide these heroes with highly trained service dogs through our comprehensive 24-week Service Dog Training Program, all at no cost to them.
Who We Are
K9 Partners for Patriots is a transformative nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering veterans with service-related challenges. Through expertly trained service dogs, we provide invaluable support, enhancing mental well-being and fostering independence. With a focus on healing and companionship, K9 Partners for Patriots creates life-changing bonds that restore lives and inspire hope.
How We’re Different from Other Service Dog Organizations
On the fringe of an airport industrial park, an unassuming gymnasium-sized structure stands as a sanctuary for warriors who have seen the harshest aspects of life on the battlefield. This is not just any structure; it’s a haven where veterans and their service dogs come together to heal, support, and thrive in a unique and fierce family environment.
Specialize in Working with Veterans
K9 Partners for Patriots specializes in working with veterans who struggle specifically with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder), TBI (traumatic brain injury), and MST (military sexual trauma).
The Veteran Trains the Dog
Veterans enroll in our comprehensive 24-Week Service Dog Training Program. The veteran trains the dog from day one with the guidance of our certified trainers and two master trainers on staff.
Our Dogs Come from Rescues
K9 Partners for Patriots focuses on rescuing shelter dogs and training them to become service dogs, providing a second chance to these animals while also assisting veterans.
Holistic Support & In-House Counseling
K9 Partners for Patriots offers a range of holistic support services. These include counseling, peer support, and community events.
Training Tailored to PTSD and Trauma
Customized training that addresses the specific challenges faced by veterans with PTSD, TBI, and trauma-related issues.
Support beyond just providing service dogs. This could include ongoing training, mental health resources, and a strong community of fellow veterans who have also benefited from our program.
The Power of the Paw
Our unique approach involves pairing rescue dogs with veterans, creating a bond that transcends words. Through our 24-week service dog training program, certified instructors guide veterans in transforming these rescue dogs into their personal service animals. It’s a journey of healing, companionship, and mutual rescue.
K9 Partners for Patriots has made a profound difference in the lives of veterans by offering them specially trained service dogs, a considerable number of which are rescued from local animal shelters.
We’ve created a community built on compassion, resilience, and the shared belief in the incredible healing Power of the Paw.
