Many veterans face significant challenges when they return to civilian life. Studies have shown that working with service dogs results in lower levels of depression, less anxiety, and fewer visits to the hospital — along with countless other benefits.
The K9s for Warriors program in Florida is making it easier to connect Veterans with service dogs. Recently, they were awarded $10,000 to continue the important work of ensuring the mental health and wellbeing of America’s Veterans.
Determined to end veteran suicide, K9s For Warriors is the nation’s largest provider of trained service dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury, or military sexual trauma.
