A Battle Worth Fighting

Roughly 20 Veterans die by suicide every day, and K9s For Warriors is determined to change that. K9s For Warriors exists because of a fierce dedication to saving the lives of both Veterans and rescue dogs. This program is backed by scientific research and empowers Veterans who fought for our freedom to live a life of dignity and independence. Graduates of the program are able to live a life that they previously did not think was possible. Many have reunited with their families, gone back to school, found renewed enjoyment in life, and significantly reduced their medications.

Before it was widely accepted, K9s For Warriors believed in the power of Service Dogs to treat Veteran’s service-connected traumas. Independent research, along with our own, validates the effectiveness of a K9 companion in preventing Veteran suicide.

Our proven program allows us to save the lives of shelter dogs in conjunction with saving Veterans’ lives. To date, our team has rescued more than 1,500 dogs. Saving these four-legged heroes from a life of abandonment or euthanasia and giving them purpose.
