We would LOVE your help to raise $25,000 to purchase our SECOND PTSD specialized service dog for a disabled Wounded Warrior. K9s For Warriors provides highly trained Service Dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma. Now more than ever these dogs will be needed.

All Service Dogs come from shelters all over the Southeast U.S. Instead of a life of abandonment, they are given a new purpose. With each graduate pair, we save two lives; we rescue the dog, and the dog rescues the Warrior.

All donations are handled by Farmers and Merchants Bank.  With your help we will have a rescued dog selected to enter training, as will a Warrior with PTSD at the K9s For Warriors, Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. A specific process will find and match the perfect pair for life.

South Metro Regional Chamber of Commerce had raised $25,000 to purchase our FIRST dog that was named in honor of those who fell in the mass Oregon District Shooting on August 4, 2019.  Thank you to the Chamber, K9s for Warriors, Farmers and Merchants Bank, and all the donors who made this project possible. We hope you will help us make a Warrior’s dream come true for our second service dog.


We are currently raising the $25,000.00 to sponsor a second rescue dog trained to rescue a PTSD affected warrior.

This project is partnered with K9s for Warriors located in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.  This organization serves warriors from all over the US from all branches of service.

The dogs come from kill shelters, so we save two lives.

The warrior and dog are carefully partnered for life thanks to sponsorships like ours.

Our first dog was named Dayton to honor the eight victims we lost locally in a massacre in the Oregon District shooting.

Dayton is the happy partner for life with Meagan, a warrior from the Unted States Navy.

We house 100% of donations at Farmers & Merchants Bank locally with nothing removed from your donation.
