K9s For Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to warriors suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disability, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma as a result of military service post 9/11.
Goal is to empower them to return to civilian life with dignity and independence.
Brianna Ehrhart, education coordinator for K9s For Warriors, said the dogs are trained before the warriors meet them, and the program includes housing, more training, and meals. Eight warriors on average are enrolled in the three-week program each month, which is all funded by sponsors and donors. Ninety percent of the canines used for the program are rescued and shelter dogs.
