New Life K9s
 
Our Mission is to save lives through the healing power of the human canine bond. New Life K9s teaches and places service dogs for Veterans and First Responders (Firefighters, Police Officers, Emergency Medical Services) with post traumatic stress free of charge.  More than 22 veterans commit suicide every day, 1 in 3 combat veterans that seek treatment are diagnosed with PTSD, and 1 in 3 homeless in the US are veterans. Our service dogs will prevent suicides, enrich relationships, reduce homelessness, save community resources, and decrease the need for medications. New Life K9s utilizes inmates at two state prisons to teach the dogs, this not only benefits New Life K9s by cutting staffing costs, it also benefits the lives of the inmates.
