Make a Difference - Host a Fundraiser

The generosity of individuals and organizations within the community helps K9s For Warriors achieve our important mission of saving lives. We do not accept government funding so that we can keep our fundraising and administrative costs low. We are so blessed to have supporters from communities across the country because they host fundraising and awareness events for our mission. Anyone can join us in our goal to save the lives of our veterans, allowing them to return to civilian life with dignity and independence.

If you are passionate about our mission, you can do pretty much anything to help us! Creating a campaign or event page is a fantastic way to fundraise for our rescue dogs and military heroes. You can ask for donations, run a race, host a dinner party or workplace fundraiser, or you can even sell lemonade. Whatever you enjoy doing, it can be used to help. It only takes a few minutes to set up so sign up with us!

1) Your posts will help spread awareness of our mission to save veterans' lives.

2) Smooching a pooch will give everyone who does it warm and loving feelings - happiness is contagious!
