In our nation, 22 Veterans commit suicide every day because they can't find work and depression sets in. K9s for Veterans is a 501©3 non-profit organization with a mission to provide job training for all Veterans including those suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury. Service dogs and handlers are in demand all over the country and our 8 week training program gives a Veteran the necessary certification to get back to work. Hundreds of Veterans have returned to the workforce and are living productive lives.
We provide a comfortable campus on 119 acres in Isle of Wight Virginia complete with multiple dorm buildings, large kitchen and dining hall, recreation center including large pool and an onsite, outdoor chapel. The dogs are highly trained along side their new owner and we utilize one of the largest climate controlled kennels in the country at 18,000 square feet which can house up to 250 dogs. Premier training firm AK9I provides the dogs and training for us.
