K9s on The Front Line is a Maine-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing certified, trained service dogs to military Veterans who are affected by PTSD and/or TBI, at no cost to our Veterans.
Thousands of military Veterans are affected by PTSD and/or TBI, while animal shelters in the US euthanize more than a million homeless dogs annually. K9s on The Front Line’s mission is to harness the incredible connection between humans and dogs, pairing Veterans with Service K9s to form a mutually rewarding bond and unleash hope again for both.Learn More
K9s on The Front Line has two programs: One for Veterans who need a fully-trained and certified Service Dog, and another for Veterans who simply need a four-legged companion. These programs are funded entirely by individual and corporate donations and grants.Learn more about how to apply
This is an advanced program for Veterans who need a fully trained and certified Service Dog that allows access to all public places as defined by ADA federal law.
This is a more basic program for Veterans who don’t need a fully trained PTSD Service Dog, but would benefit from a well-trained, four-legged companion.
