Our Mission

Have you ever looked into the eyes of a K9 who has suffered trauma and seen the pain and confusion in its eyes, that brave but beat-down expression that looks like a plea for help? Or maybe you've seen the light coming back to a traumatized K9's eyes as it begins to hold its head a little higher and its gait becomes more trusting, confident, and relaxed.

Meet Our K9s

You've come to the right place if you want to see compassion in action! You'll get a chance to meet each of our dogs, both those who are here to heal and those who will soon help others heal. We can't wait for our military and law enforcement veterans to meet them.

Sometimes, all of our considerable efforts cannot change what has happened to a dog after the trauma they suffered in the line of duty. Some working dogs come here with PTSD so bad that it cannot be healed enough for them to be placed with a veteran. So… they become ours. We can't abandon them. Please consider making a donation toward these special dogs' long-term care.

We've staffed the K9 PTSD Center with highly skilled professionals who know what it takes to work with all kinds of dogs, including very large, very strong German Shepherds that are experiencing serious behavioral issues due to recent trauma. The center seems to experience miracles every day as dogs such as these recover and become emotionally healthy, happy, and productive again. That's made possible by our team members. We can't say enough about them, but the success of our "graduates" speaks volumes.
