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
The veteran trains the dog from day one under the instruction and guidance of our certified trainers, with 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.
Our in-house licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) conducts individual and group counseling sessions with program veterans.
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.
K9 Partners for Patriots has had a significant impact on veterans’ lives by providing service dogs, many of which are rescued from animal shelters.
