K9s for Warriors
K9s for Warriors is the nation’s largest provider of trained Service Dogs to veterans suffering from PTSD and other military-related trauma. We rescue and train shelter dogs to be paired as Service Dogs for Warriors with service-connected post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma. Our mission aims to conquer veteran suicide, one Warrior/K9 team at a time.
The Petco Love K9 Center will serve as K9s For Warriors’ hub in the southwestern United States, with a focus on saving larger, hard-to-rescue dogs. Dogs at this facility will be tested, housed, and receive initial veterinary care until they are ready to receive formal Service Dog training at K9s For Warriors’ headquarters in Northeast Florida.
Following the ribbon cutting ceremony, we’ll offer some light refreshments and tours of our facility.
