Bayer Launches Operation K9 Care to Assist Graduates of K9s For Warriors

March 21, 2016

Bayer Animal Health is expanding its partnership with K9s For Warriors by connecting its alumni with clinics and retailers that agree to provide free health and wellness goods through its new Operation K9 Care program.

K9s For Warriors is a nonprofit organization that pairs specially trained shelter dogs with veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Bayer’s Operation K9 Care is completely free to veterans and ensures that all those who graduate from K9s For Warriors can more easily afford their service dogs.

“These service dogs are life-savers,” said Shari Duval, president and founder of K9s For Warriors. “We’re losing about 8,000 American military heroes each year due to suicide, which is heartbreaking and unacceptable. What these dogs can do for veterans is a miracle, and we thank Bayer for connecting us with the veterinary clinics and pet retailers that are helping to eliminate the expense of service dog ownership.”
