Volunteers will always be important to the K9s For Warriors family because they help in the success of the program. The talent provided by our volunteers helps us to continue our mission to provide service dogs to post-9/11 military veterans who are suffering with Post-Traumatic Stress. Contributing to K9s For Warriors leaves an experience to our warriors and service dogs that they will cherish throughout their whole lives. K9s For Warriors strives to offer our volunteers a worthwhile and rewarding experience.
Are you a people person? Do you enjoy spending time out in public talking about a topic you are passionate about?
If so, consider joining our Volunteer Ambassador Program! This opportunity allows you to spread our mission and educate the community on the issues that our brave veterans face. You also get to share the solutions to these issues that K9s For Warriors provides through our service dog program. If you feel you want to raise your voice for a cause, K9s For Warriors will train you to prepare to discuss our program.
Ambassadors must be local to the Jacksonville – St. Augustine – Orange Park area.
“I love volunteering, I love “Big Dogs” and being able to share how amazing the K9s For Warriors Program is with the public. This is why I am proud to be a Volunteer Ambassador!!”
– Karla, Volunteer Ambassador, K9s For Warriors
