DOGZAZ® is proud to announce a new support agreement with K9S for Warriors, a non-profit charitable organization that provides service canines to veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury as a result of military service since 9/11.
Dedicated to improving the lives of veterans, DOGZAZ® will be supporting K9S for Warriors by donating $2.50 for each cap sold. This financial support will be used to help underwrite the cost of matching shelter dogs with suffering veterans, providing training for both canine and veteran at the organization’s Florida facility, and helping improve the veteran’s quality of life through animal therapy. Listed on greatnonprofit.org, K9S for Warriors has been recognized as a superior organization with dedicated founders and staff. Currently under construction, their new expanded facility will house 16 veterans each month. The new location will feature a host of human amenities as well as an expanded kennel and pool for the service dogs which are rescued from animal shelters. K9S for Warriors’ holistic approach empowers wounded warriors to return to civilian life with dignity and independence.
Testimonials provided by warrior graduates emphasize the positive effects that their canine companions have had on them. Many attest to the fact that their faithful escorts provide a significant focal point and provide unconditional love and support when public or personal situations trigger adverse responses. Statistics show that 96 percent of warrior graduates are still paired successfully with their service dogs one year later, while 92 percent are able to either reduce or eliminate their need for anti-anxiety medications within six months.
Providing a helping hand to the men and women who served this country is of the utmost importance to the founders of DOGZAZ® so all current charitable resources will be devoted to K9S for Warriors.
