Partners For Patriots was formed in 2009 in Tennessee and relocated to Iowa in 2013. Funding is always on the front burner as we obtain, train and provide service dogs to disabled Veterans free of charge. The dogs are delivered and the Veteran is provided with up to 15 days of training.

Partners For Patriots has provided 5 to 10 dogs per year and recently are in negotiations to purchase a property for the purpose of constructing our Partners For Patriots Canine Complex which will allow us to provide 25 to 40 dogs per year and up to 60 or more at full capacity.

Most of our dogs are taken from Shelters and Rescues. We feel we are saving a life to enrich another.  We have had breeders donate pups and older dogs also.
