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.
Any Conflict, Any Era
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.
Giving veterans and shelter dogs a second chance at life through the experience of learning to train their own service dog.
Not All Wounds Are Visible
A veteran commits suicide approximately every 65 minutes each day due to the overwhelming effects of PTSD • TBI • MST. Service dogs are making a significant and life changing difference in the lives of these men and women. Our nation’s veterans deserve compassion and support.

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.

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