K9 Partners for Patriots
Foster Care Program
You provide love and shelter, We’ll provide everything else.
What Is Foster Care?
Once we identify a dog as a good candidate for service work, we want to secure that dog for a veteran as soon as possible.
Foster caregivers enable us to do that and the dog doesn’t have to return to the shelter to wait.
From Shelters and Rescues
We are always looking for dogs for PTSD, TBI and MST service dog work. Our search always begins with homeless animal shelters and rescues. We also accept donations from breeders and private indivduals who are in need of re-homing a dog.
Why Foster A Dog for us?
Fostering improves the lives of shelter dogs for veterans in need of a service dog in a very direct way. It also helps us decrease or eliminate wait times for veterans while we find the right dog to meet their individual needs.
Fostering a dog for K9 Partners for Patriots is an incredibly rewarding experience you’ll never forget. Opening your heart and home to a future service dog is one of the greatest contributions you can make to a veteran with PTSD, TBI or MST.
Reduced Shelter Stay
Dogs get moved out of the shelter sooner and create space for another homeless dog.
Provide us with valuable information about a dog’s personality and behavior traits.
