Proffitt Brothers Foundation’s $5,000 Donation Empowers 12 Veterans at K9s for Warriors

The Proffitt Brothers Foundation’s $5,000 donation to K9s for Warriors will enable an entire “Warrior Class”, consisting of 12 veterans, to embark on a transformative journey towards improved mental and emotional well-being. Join us as we delve into the power of this donation, and how it aligns with PBF's mission to incentivize organizations who have demonstrated their propensity to do good.

Empowering Warriors for a Successful 21 Days

K9s for Warriors is a trailblazing organization dedicated to providing service dogs to veterans struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), traumatic brain injury (TBI), or military sexual trauma (MST). One of the crucial aspects of their program is the intensive 21-day training camp that veterans and their service dogs undergo. This camp serves as a pivotal step in the journey towards recovery and healing.

Our $5,000 donation will cover the comprehensive needs of an entire Warrior class during their stay at the K9s for Warriors campus. This includes everything necessary for a successful 21 days, ensuring that these veterans have the tools and support they require to thrive. The impact of this donation extends far beyond monetary value; it symbolizes a commitment to healing and honoring those who have served our nation.

Comprehensive Support for Warriors:

Our donation will encompass a wide range of essential items and resources that play a significant role in the training and well-being of both the veterans and their service dogs. Here are some key components that our donation covers:

  1. Training Materials: Veterans receive access to all necessary training materials to help them build a strong and lasting bond with their service dogs.
  2. Dog Bowls: Something as simple as dog bowls ensures that the veterans can take care of their service dogs' basic needs with ease and convenience.
  3. Treat Pouches: These pouches facilitate positive reinforcement training, allowing veterans to reward and motivate their service dogs effectively.
  4. Crossbody Leashes: Specially designed leashes provide practicality and comfort, allowing the veterans to maintain control during training exercises.
  5. Service Dog Vests: The iconic service dog vests signify the partnership between a veteran and their service dog, fostering a sense of pride and responsibility.
  6. More Essentials: The donation covers additional essentials that contribute to a comfortable and successful stay on campus, demonstrating a holistic approach to support.

Additionally, this donation helps to offset the production costs associated with running K9s for Warriors programming.

Changing Lives, One Donation at a Time:

By providing comprehensive support for an entire Warrior class at K9s for Warriors, we are directly contributing to the healing and well-being of 12 veterans. These veterans will not only gain life-changing service dogs but also the skills, confidence, and support necessary to reintegrate into civilian life with newfound strength and resilience.

A Heartfelt Thank You to Our Supporters:

We want to take this moment to express our deepest gratitude to all of our supporters, especially those who generously donated to the Jania Mania Race for Veteran Charities event held this past July. Your steadfast support has made it possible for us to continue our mission and extend our reach to veterans in need. It's your dedication that fuels our efforts and enables us to create lasting change in the lives of our nation’s heroes.
