Jeremiah & Vinny – January 2019
“K9s has opened the door to my life again by giving me Vinny. It’s a family trying to save one brother and sister at a time. It is now up to me to continue stepping forward.”

Mario & Glory – November 2018
“One of my best friends graduated from this program. After noticing the change in my battle buddy’s emotional and physical state of mind, I immediately wanted to be part of it. This has been one of the best experiences of my life and is definitely life-changing. The training is top notch, instructors are passionate and squared away, the facility is immaculate and most importantly, you’re going to leave with a new best friend that will not judge you and provide you with love and comfort.”

Melinda & Shadow – August 2017
“Through the years I have worked hard, acknowledging my triggers and applying my coping skills.  However, I needed help overcoming some fears and obstacles. I needed this program to become human again. For years I told myself ‘sometimes you have to fail before you can fly.’ Because of K9s For Warriors, I no longer have to fly alone.”

Dion & KC – October 2018
“I was a prisoner in my own life. I wanted a service dog to give me the chance to get out and feel safe, thus relieving my social anxieties and overcome my fear of crowds. K9s For Warriors provides a service member with the freedom to experience life and participate/integrate back into civilian life. It gives the warrior hope to push forward.”

Rebecca & Bobbi – August 2018
“K9s gave me back my confidence, and most importantly, my smile. It’s given me a reason to get out of bed excited about facing my fears and challenging myself. I know my Service Dog will be there for me to lean on. I lacked that security before I came to Camp K9. It’s given me a reason to be grateful, instead of carrying around my usual grudge. It gives you a purpose and a responsibility, and of course, a battle buddy.”

Jay & Belfair – July 2017
“In a way, both Belfair and I had some demons and baggage in our previous life. We came to each other with no preconceptions and were just there for each other. I was skeptical about the good that this would have, but as the bonding process went on we got reliant on each other, him not just for life-sustaining food and water and me not just a companion, but as one hot mess that matched perfectly and made us both feel better. I want to thank everyone at K9s for they love they put forth to us. You would think they are making millions doing their job. If it’s measured in lives, they are.”

Jason & Macho – June 2017
“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.”

Scott & Jeannie – June 2016
"K9s For Warriors is a professional organization focused on helping veterans. K9s helped me with my PTSD by providing me with a highly trained, personal Service Dog that is with me 100% of the time. Jeannie helps alert me to potential PTSD stressors and helps me to cope with my anger and depression that often follow a PTSD episode.”
