OUR MISSION STATEMENT
To provide obedient dogs to disabled veterans of all war eras, to help the veterans overcome their invisible disabilities in order to become more productive and functional, and inform the public of the need for service dogs.
For many veterans, traditional medicine does not provide what is
needed to live a full and satisfying life. This is a need that a service dog can
fill. We at K-9's for Veterans show clients how to train a dog to do what is needed to
overcome or minimize their problems. This adds a dimension of
confidence to the veteran's life that no amount of medicine can give. Focusing
on the dog instead of a disability can give the self-assurance needed to go out
in public, rejoining society in a positive way.
K-9s for Veterans is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing disabled veterans and dogs, one team at a time. Mike Halley created K-9s for Veterans in October 2008. Clients are disabled veterans and soldiers in the wounded warrior units of their respective branches of the service. The disabilities can include balance issues, diabetes, seizures, TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury), PTSD (Post Traumatic Brain Injury) and many more.
