About the Top Dogg K9 Foundation:   There is a fierce stigma associated with mental illness that is deep-rooted in the veteran community. Tragically, this stigma frequently prevents veterans from seeking the help they deserve for PTSD, TBI, fear, depression, and anxiety. Studies have shown that dogs help provide our deserving veterans a healthy, happy, and more independent life. 

Top Dogg K9 Foundation (TDK9) is the leading support center for veterans within our community, reducing the number of military families impacted by suicide due to mental illness each year.  TDK9 stands on the principle that Veterans Deserve Outstanding Generosity and Service (VDOGS). We support this principle by rescuing, training, and pairing service dogs with disabled veterans and those struggling with mental health challenges post-deployment for a happier, healthier and more balanced life.

TDK9 provides dog training, referrals for support/social services, canine therapy workshops as well as social support and networking opportunities for veterans, with veterans. We provide these life-changing services to veterans at no cost to them.  We are proud to not only provide canine companion and service aids to our deserving veterans, but to also offer greater linkage to care and social services for their families and serve as a safe-haven for emotional wellness.
