A companion dog can be your best therapist

K9 TO THE CORPS

WHO WE ARE

K9 to the Corps understands the therapeutic benefits that develop when Veterans train selected shelter dogs as their own companions. Community sponsors in the Pitt County, NC area support a local process to get you there sooner.

 

WHAT WE DO

Step 1

Pet Matching

Our community shelters and professional trainers screen dogs as candidates for this program in an effort to provide the best match for your personal companion.

Step 2

Community Partnership

Our local community has many partners who are passionate about providing this support for all members of our armed forces. From your first veterinarian check-up, to grooming, to basic supplies, our partners will work with you to provide services at an affordable cost to you.

Step 3

Professional Training Classes

At K9 to the Corps, we are dedicated to the success of your relationship with your companion dog. You will train in classes with other Veterans, and will understand the bond of support not only from your dog, but also from other teams committed to this program.  Canine Good Citizen training is included in equipping your partnership.

*Classes are only for dogs adopted through the Pitt County Animal Shelter in coordination with K9 to the Corps.
