Alpha K9 Fighting PTSD One Service Dog at a Time!
Who is Alpha K9?
are a disabled veteran owned non-profit in Sacramento, CA that has been
dedicated since its inception to provide and train Post-Traumatic Stress
Disorder (PTSD) Service Dogs to veterans across the country. In the last 12
months our non-profit has produced over 30 Service Dogs to men and women who might
have otherwise ended their own lives. I
cannot stress the importance of the need for funding because funding for
Service Dogs is almost nonexistent.
Across the country, Service Dogs are costing veterans between $10,000
and $25,000 dollars per dog and with most insurance companies not covering the
cost of the animals it puts a significant burden on these families who are
often living off disability incomes because the families often cannot work in
order to care for the veteran. Our
non-profit is a smaller operation that often has the ability to provide PTSD
Service Dogs at no-cost to the veteran however that is not always the case and
even with all our efforts a Service Dog with us can potentially cost a veteran
and their family between $2,000-$5,000 dollars.
invite you down to come take a look at our program and see the benefit of a
Service Dog for a veteran and their family.
We would love the opportunity to show you our dogs, their potential for
success, and answer questions from a perspective that you may not normally find
in your briefings. We have a very unique
perspective on the Service Dog community because, unlike any other company, we
are run by a Disabled Combat Veteran who was a Military Working Dog Trainer and
Kennel Master for the US Army.
What does Alpha K9 need?
Alpha K9 is always looking for creative ways to fund-raise for our Non-Profit
Organization. If you have any ideas on fundraising or are able to help out with
a donation (all amounts appreciated) in any way please let us know. Sponsorship/Affiliate information is
available upon request if you are interested in being actively involved!
