Twenty-two seconds. Have you ever timed just how fast 22 seconds goes by? It's pretty fast. And according to K9s for Warriors' STOP22.org, "Today and every day moving forward 22 Veterans commit suicide, this is over 8,000, military heroes that will be lost in one year. This sobering fact can’t be ignored."
We repeat: Every 22 seconds we lose one of our military veterans to suicide.
K9s For Warriors aims to help these veterans by providing "service canines to our warriors suffering from post-traumatic stress and/or traumatic brain injury as a result of military service post 9/11. Our goal is to give a new leash on life to rescue dogs and military heroes, empowering warriors to return to civilian life with dignity and independence."
