What makes the organization unique?:
K9 Battle Buddies, INC is a non-profit, veteran helping veteran, program that trains rescue dogs to be service dogs for combat veterans with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and/or TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). Our goal is to offer immediate companionship by placing the battle buddy (rescue dog) with the veteran and then working with the veteran on training their buddy until they can pass our public access test.
