MedTrust’s extended Business Development team is proud to announce their support of K9s For Warriors as their charity for 2019. K9s For Warriors is the nation’s largest provider of service dogs for disabled American veterans. They are dedicated to providing service canines to our warriors suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, and/or Military Sexual Trauma as a result of military service post-9/11. Their goal is to empower veterans to return to civilian life with dignity and independence. Preventing suicide attempts and suicidal ideation is K9s For Warriors number one objective. Roughly 90% of their service dogs come from shelters or are owner-surrendered. Instead of a life of abandonment or euthanasia, they are given a new purpose. With each graduate pair, they save two lives; they rescue the dog, and the dog rescues the warrior. As of December 2019, 1,146 dogs were rescued, and 596 warriors were rescued.
