Life Changing Moments Happen Here

Volunteer for K9 Partners for Patriots and turn your compassion for veterans and homeless 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.

We have individuals who host events to raise money for our programs. They help out in the office or transport dogs from shelters. They attend speaking engagements and lead tours of the training campus. They socialize with students and their families and foster dogs in preparation for being matched with a veteran to become a service dog.
