Support warriors and their K9s in the New York area!

Bark Breakfast Benefit Tour in New York, NY - September 30, 2013

Omni Berkshire

Wendy Diamond, Animal Fair and K9s For Warriors have teamed up to provide 10 veterans with service dogs through the Bark Breakfast Tour and Wendy’s New Book “How To Train Your Boss to Rollover” coming to a city near you.  Wendy’s trademark fun and celebrity hosts will provide a fun filled beginning to your day.

SAVE A DOG, SAVE A VETERAN!  For every donation you will know you helped a hero receive a life changing gift.  Click on JOIN to reserve your seat today.

If the Bark Breakfast Tour is not coming to your city you can still be a part of helping our heroes, click on DONATE and make a difference today.

Wendy and K9s For Warriors wants you to know where your donor dollars go! When you donate you will receive email updates on the warrior/canine team you helped save as well as updates on other veterans and their service dogs too. The Bark Business Benefit Tour is 100% transparent you will know the veteran and dog you helped save!

Help save the nearly 30 percent of the 2.3 million veterans who are affected by Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), by supporting K9′s For Warriors at the Bark Business Breakfast Benefit. The K9’s For Warriors Program/Rescue heroically rescues dogs from shelters prior to being euthanized and pairs them with a veteran with PTSD. You will be honored with the invaluable gift of saving two lives through your support.  The event will be adorable (yes, everyone can bring their dogs!) and Scott, a K9s For Warriors graduate veteran and his service dog Whiskey, will be honored during this benefit as well!

Every 65 minutes, a veteran commits suicide due to PTSD. This horrible disorder is an epidemic among the 2.3 million veterans in the U.S., as many as 184 new cases are diagnosed every single day! This is an alarming statistic, but studies show dogs can be very therapeutic and greatly beneficial in the treatment of PTSD as well as other military-related stresses.

This is where the generous K9’s For Warriors Program/Rescue comes to the rescue! After it heroically saves dogs from shelters and transports them back to the program’s facility, it gives the dogs a complete physical, making sure they are in perfect health, and trains them to meet CGC (Canine Good Citizen) standards. Upon completion, each dog is paired with a veteran with PTSD or a Traumatic Brain Injury based on the veteran’s special needs and the special tasks the dog is most capable of performing.
