"K9s for Veterans Abroad and Richard generously provided me with my new wing man Sam. Sam helps me to find that balance in my life that has been missing for a long time. In bad and good times Sam is by my side to help me navigate the many hurdles of PTSD. Thank you Richard and K9s for Veterans Abroad Team for all you have done for me, our Veterans, and Service Members."

Our Sixth Team


"I would like to personally thank K9s Veterans Abroad for the wonderful partnership and companion which I now have the pleasure of sharing my daily life with.  Ella, has become an instrumental and integral part of my family, but more important my battle buddy.  


She is my shadow and constant companion in my daily activities. I can’t express how my quality of life has improved in just a few short weeks of first meeting Ella and then working with, and finally bringing Ella to her forever home. I am extremely grateful for this opportunity to be able to learn to live with my condition of PTSD and have a better quality of life."

"I would like to thank K9s for Veterans Abroad so much for helping me to find Brisket. He and I bonded immediately and it has been nothing but love since. I have PTSD and TBIs from four Army combat tours to Iraq and Afghanistan. It has brought me great joy to train and lean how a service dog can help me through anxiety and depression in life. Again I can’t say enough how thankful I am for Brisket."

Their unyielding commitment and tireless dedication to me was beyond reproach. I will never be able to repay them for their generosity that was so freely provided. Through their help I am able to open a new chapter in my life and look forward to the new sunrises and sunsets with optimism and hope for a brighter future. Thank you, Richard and K9s for Veterans Abroad for all your love and support."
