Honoring those who serve and have served our country is a priority at Boyd & Jenerette. Many of our firm’s members come from a family of service, which are also deserving of our gratitude and recognition for their resilience and dedication in facing the unique challenges they face serving our country.
In honor and recognition of Veterans Day this year, Boyd & Jenerette P.A. will be making a donation to K9s For Warriors.
About K9s For Warriors
Determined to end veteran suicide, K9s For Warriors provides highly-trained Service Dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma. With the majority of dogs coming from high-kill rescue shelters, this innovative program allows the K9/Warrior team to build an unwavering bond that facilitates their collective healing and recovery. This treatment method is backed by scientific research (from Purdue University’s OHAIRE Lab) demonstrating Service Dogs’ ability to help mitigate their veteran’s symptoms of PTSD while simultaneously restoring their confidence and independence.
Founded in 2011 as a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, K9s For Warriors remains committed to bringing widespread awareness to veterans’ mental health and contributing to policy-level reform. The organization’s three primary business operation facilities include: K9s For Warriors National Headquarters (Ponte Vedra, Fla.,) Gold Family Campus (Alachua, Fla.,) and the Petco Foundation K9 Center (San Antonio, Texas).
