SIGNIFICANCE:

“The unfortunate, staggering fact is, every day 22 veterans returning from combat take their lives,” said Rory Diamond, Executive Director, at K9s For Warriors. “The K9s for Warriors training program not only provides our soldiers with a live-saving gift, but it is also an opportunity for peer to peer support with other servicemen and women who suffer from similar issues.”

About K9s For Warriors

Founded in 2011 as a 501(c) 3 organization by Shari Duval, K9s For Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to our warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma as a result of military service post 9/11. Our goal is to give a new leash on life to rescue dogs and military heroes, empowering warriors to return to civilian life with dignity and independence.

The event is being organized by American Legion Riders Chapter 202.
