Operation K-9 Hero is a volunteer based, nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing comfort and companionship to Veterans and Public Safety Officials through canine therapy.
We’re here for them
At Operation K-9 Hero, our goal is to offer our Therapy Dog as an “ice-breaker” and help “start the conversation” that these individuals are not alone and that we are here for them.
We are passionate about the well-being of our professionals. Many of them are exposed to traumatic situations, which can lead to stress, anxiety, depression, PTSD and sometimes suicide.
Our heroes who serve and protect our communities and our country have made many sacrifices, and now we want to give back and help serve them.
Our mission is to give back to our Military Veterans, Law Enforcement, Firefighters and Paramedics in need by providing a K-9 human partnership and help bring them consolation, cheer and affection.
Our primary purpose is to help support the mental health of our heroes and offer emotional support as part of a k-9 therapeutic intervention.
Studies have shown that interacting with Therapy Dogs as part of an animal-assisted intervention approach yields both physical and psychological benefits to humans and the dog.
Our Therapy Dog will accompany us into specific settings, whether it’s a public place, your organization, or private home, for the primary benefit of providing comfort and support.
