Washington DC - K9s For Warriors

THE STORY:

Every 65 minutes a veteran commits suicide according to the Department of Veterans Affairs; most suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).

This horrible epidemic is among the 2.4 million veterans and active duty members returning home –  184 new cases are diagnosed every single day!  

K9s For Warriors rescues dogs prior to being euthanized and trains them to be service dogs for Veterans with PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury. This program is 100% proven, transparent and successful!  

We will honor Jason, 32, who was a United States Marine Captain, where he served for 14 years. He graduated from K9s For Warriors in September 2012, where he was paired with Axel, a German Shepherd. Axel’s story is common to K9s For Warriors: He was found in a rescue shelter without a lot of background history. 

We hope you can you can attend our benefit on September 20th at the Omni Hotel or if you are unable consider donating to help a Veteran with PTSD in Washington DC receive a service dog from K9s For Warriors.

Please join us for a patriotic breakfast to honor K9s For Warriors, meet graduates and celebrate National Service Dog Month!
