Mission K9 Warrior - service dogs for veterans
"I have one of the dogs. SGT MAJOR BIGFOOT. He has helped me more than you ever know. He is my constant shadow. Right now he has had breakfast and has his head on my foot. He has woken me up from many Nam dreams and thought. He is so special I don't have a clue how he does it but it's worked every time since i got him. Right now he knows I'm thinking about Nam. He is pushing his head under my arm making hard to type. Don't have a clue how he does it but it's real.
I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL IN THE PROGRAM. GOD BLESS YOU ALL
Karl and Bigfoot"
In America today there is an emotional and psychological crisis affecting many of our combat veterans. Many of them are suffering from PTSD because they brought these horrors and nightmares home. Too often they are forced to fight these battles alone and in solitude. Even their families suffer as they try and support them in their private journey through this process of transitioning home. Our mission is to raise funds to provide highly trained service K9s to these combat veterans at no charge to them. These service K9s can literally be a life saving difference in the life of a combat veteran in crisis.
We invite veterans in need to apply for one of these highly trained K9 Service dogs. Our Mission K9 Warrior team reviews all applications. It is our goal to provide a K9 service dog to the qualified veterans that need them the most.
