Abstract

With the assistance of service dogs, we’re bringing a measure of peace and functionality to veterans who are facing a war all over again as they cope with anxieties born of service-related post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), and/or military sexual trauma (MST).

K9 Partners for Patriots exists to prevent veteran suicide. We currently have 433 veterans from 36 Florida counties in our program. Our 6-month program is completely free to all qualifying veterans and service members.
