K9 Partners for Patriots


K9 Partners for Patriots is an organization transforming the lives of veterans and active duty service members struggling with the effects of PTS, TBI, and/or MST. Founded in 2013 by nationally known Certified Master Dog Trainer, Mary Peter on the belief that service dogs could help these men and women reintegrate back into civilian life with confidence and regain their independence. K9 Partners for Patriots rescues homeless dogs and teaches veterans to train them as their own service dogs in a safe and judgment-free, family environment. We work in collaboration with local communities, partner organizations, and governments to raise awareness about PTSD and educate the public about the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and virtually all state laws, about service animals that have been trained to perform work or tasks for the benefit of a person with a disability.
