Review for K9 Partners for Patriots, Inc., Brooksville, FL, USA
This organization has changed my life. After getting out of the Army I spiraled out of control into an ocean of depression, survivors guilt, and anxiety. It took the VA years to finally diagnose me correctly, however during that time I found myself self-medicating with street drugs to try and numb/remove the emotional pain and anxiety I experienced on a daily basis. I found K9 Partners for Patriots (K9P4P) when I was at my lowest point, and they immediately brought me into their family and have stood beside me ever since. Their service dog program is different from others in that they train the veteran - who in turn trains their service animal under the watchful eye of the trainers on staff. This method of training is very empowering and it helped me and my service dog build an incredibly strong connection.
I am grateful for this organization and how it not only saves the lives of the various puppies it rescues but also saves the lives of the veterans who enter the program as well. If you are a veteran who suffers from PTSD, MST or TBI and feel as though you are not living your life, I urge you to please reach out to K9P4P. They will help you start living your best life!
