A New Leash on Life: The K9s for Warriors Story

Shari Duval was desperate for a solution to help her son Brett when he returned from serving in Iraq, suffering from PTSD. She stumbled on a story about a service dog helping a veteran and that story sparked an idea. That idea, to start a service dog agency for veterans, gave Brett new hope. Together, the two formed K9s for Warriors, which pairs veterans with service dogs. For each warrior the organization saves, they also rescue a dog from a shelter. The organization has saved the lives of more than 400 veterans and 800 dogs. This is their story.Written by Katie Tschopp
