We would love if you would support our Benefit to honor Veterans who have selflessly defended our nation on Saturday October 5, 2013 at 10 AM at the Omni – Downtown Los Angeles benefitting the K9s For Warriors Program/Rescue.
Every 65 minutes a veteran commits suicide; most of them suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, 184 new cases are diagnosed daily. The K9s For Warriors rescues dogs from shelters prior to being euthanized and trains them to be service dogs for veterans with PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury.
K9s For Warriors is 100% proven, transparent and successful! 94% of every dollar donated to K9s For Warriors goes directly to the Veteran & service dogs. Only 6% is used on fundraising and overhead. Shari Duval, the founder and Executive Director of K9s For Warriors takes no salary.

We hope you will inspire your troops (friends, family members, and coworkers) to join this fundraiser, attend the Bark Breakfast Benefit (Saturday October 5, 2013 at 10 AM at the Omni – Downtown Los Angeles) and be a part of history with helping a Veteran with PTSD in Los Angeles participate in the K9s for Warriors program.
