Welcome to K9s For Warriors

K9s For Warriors is ending veteran suicide and returning our warriors to a life of dignity and independence. We rescue and train shelter dogs to be paired as Service Dogs for warriors with service-connected Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and/or Military Sexual Trauma.

We are the nation's largest provider of service dogs for disabled American veterans.

 

K9s For Warriors is a tax-exempt 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization.

testimonial

“My lovely wife and I did a lot of research on Service Dogs. We came across a link to Dear Captain. I watched it and had goosebumps because I could relate. Suicide doesn’t take away the pain, it gives it to someone else. I chose the program to get my life back so that my family can go to new heights together. This program is great. It helps me do things I only dreamed of. Because of what K9s does, I can take my life back and be the father and husband my family need. I can never thank them enough for this.” -Jason & Macho – June 2017
