Service Dogs Save Lives

Service dogs are bringing a measure of peace and functionality to veterans who are facing a war all over again as they cope with anxieties born of service-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and/or military sexual trauma (MST).

K9 Partners for Patriots exists to eliminate veteran suicide. We currently have veterans from 36 Florida counties in our program. Our 6-month program is completely free to all qualifying veterans and active-duty service members.

 

Since 2014

Why K9 Partners for Patriots?

Veterans go to war a brotherhood. Upon returning home, they’re left to fight their demons alone. K9 Partners for Patriots provides opportunities for vets to meet each other, share their stories, and process their pain while they train their own service dogs. They find trust and understanding in our non-judgmental family environment. The weekly service dog training classes and quarterly gatherings go a long way to breaking the perilous pattern of isolation that too often leads to the premature end of life.

Our group technique of service dog training helps the veteran integrate back into a social environment that helps improve many aspects of their lives, including family and marital relationships, revitalizing old friendships, and developing new ones.

Our family of veterans, staff, and volunteers genuinely care about each other. We’re dedicated to providing support and encouragement long after the service dog training course is complete.

Partnering with Shelters and Rescues

Homeless Dogs & Veterans Rescue Each Other

 

Individuals who are hurting seem to identify on a special level with dogs that have been abandoned, mistreated, or neglected.

Some of our program canines have been donated by breeders or private individuals seeking to re-home a dog, but most of our 4-legged recruits are procured from homeless animal shelters and rescues.

We count it a moral imperative and do our best to get dogs out of shelters and rescues and into loving homes living a life of purpose and service with the veterans that need them.

Approximately 670,000 dogs Are Euthanized Every year.

 

K9 Partners for Patriots, Inc. was approved by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit on November 4, 2014.

Your donation is fully tax-deductible within the guidelines of the U.S law.
