Minnesota-based K9s From Carrie is a leading 501(c)(3) nonprofit in the United States to shine light on mental health awareness through education and the pairing of individuals with dogs to help manage mental illness and reduce suicide. We believe people of all ages and backgrounds suffering from mental illness deserve respect and support rather than embarrassment and shame.
Our primary objective is to provide support to people in mental health crisis by sponsoring the purchase and training of emotional support dogs.
We do this by 1) pairing a physically and emotionally sound dog with individuals as well as sponsoring obedience and emotional support training to that dog, and by 2) sponsoring obedience and emotional support training for an existing dog belonging to an individual or family.
K9s From Carrie also promotes mental health and suicide prevention awareness through events and speaking engagements.
