Volunteer for K9 Partners for Patriots and turn your compassion for veterans and rescue dogs into action. 

Join Our Fierce Family of Veteran & K9 Support Volunteers

Our veterans and rescue dogs need your time and talents!

Volunteers are the lifeblood of this organization. Our veteran support volunteers enable us to fortify our mission to end veteran suicide. They possess a kind compassion and understanding for our veterans with PTSD, traumatic brain injury, and military sexual trauma. Without them, everything that needs doing simply couldn’t get done.
