1st Annual K9 Helper Fundraiser

Hi all.  My name is Susan Goodfriend. My church, Family of Faith and I wanted to do something to show our support toward those who have served our country. I found the orgnization known as "K9s For Warriors" and read up on all the wonderful things they do. We decided to host a fundraiser to show that support. It is our honor to do this for them.

K9s For Warriors is the nation’s largest veteran service organization providing highly skilled service dogs to post-9/11, disabled American heroes. Our goal is to empower warriors to return to life with dignity and independence.  Preventing suicide attempts and suicidal ideation is our number one objective.  That's why the core of our training is focused on mitigating the symptoms associated with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Military Sexual Trauma (MST).

Roughly 90% of our service dogs come from shelters or are owner-surrendered. Instead of a life of abandonment or euthanasia, they are given a new purpose.  With each graduate pair, we save two lives; we rescue the dog, and the dog rescues the warrior.
