22 for Life

22 Veterans Die by Suicide Everyday

Every day, 22 veterans tragically lose their lives to suicide. Behind each statistic lies a story of bravery, sacrifice, and struggle. These men and women who have served our country deserve our unwavering support, especially when they return home facing the invisible wounds of war. New Life K9s is on a mission to combat this crisis by providing service dogs to veterans and first responders battling post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). With your help, we can make a profound difference in the lives of those who have sacrificed so much for our safety and freedom.

Service Dogs to the Rescue

A 2009 survey reported PTSD symptom reduction in 82% of those partnered with a Service Dog and 40% reported a decrease in use of medication.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a debilitating condition that affects countless veterans and first responders. Symptoms can include flashbacks, nightmares, severe anxiety, and hypervigilance, making it challenging for individuals to reintegrate into civilian life. Service dogs have emerged as a powerful tool in managing PTSD symptoms, providing companionship, emotional support, and a sense of security to those in need. Through specialized training, these dogs can alert their handlers to signs of distress, provide comfort during panic attacks, and offer unconditional love and understanding.
