Wars end, but K2’s commitment to serving the men and woman of the United States military, many of whom are suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), is ongoing. K2-trained canines have served our military with distinction, clearing IEDs that saved the lives of countless servicemen and women while providing them much needed comfort and companionship while they were so far from family, friends and home.
In an effort to help improve the lives of our Veterans, K2 has partnered with multiple non-profit organizations including the Armed Forces Foundation and Hearts for Heroes.
Hearts for Heroes (H4H) is a non-profit organization dedicated to helping veterans re-acclimate to life after deployment.
The Armed Forces Foundation, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, dedicated to supporting and advocating for active-duty military personnel, National Guardsmen, Reservists, military families, and veterans, to determine how service and therapy dogs can help mitigate the debilitating effects of PTSD. Leveraging AFF’s veteran advocacy programs and K2’s ability to apply canine capabilities to address the varied manifestations of PTSD, will lead to improved methodologies to help veterans with PTSD.
