22 for 22 by Veterans Day 2022
Top Tier K9 in association with Forgotten Coast K9 will be training and delivering 22 dogs to 22 disabled veterans and first responders by Veterans Day, 2022.
Dogs save lives and are absolutely the BEST treatment for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). On average 22 veterans commit suicide every day in America.
We are seeing more and more that the need for service dogs, protection dogs, and emotional support dogs have never been greater. The waiting list for almost every charity is 4-5 years. We have an average turn around time of 8 weeks. That includes finishing the dogs for the veterans and training the veterans on managing the dogs. It takes money to make this happen. Top Tier K9 will be matching all donations made to Forgotten Coast K9 for this project through in-kind services. This is your chance to help make a difference for the men and women who put it all on the line for us. Donate at www.ForgottenCoastK9.com
Read about our build a buddy program (www.BuildaBattleBuddy.com ) read about our K9 warriors for women program (www.K9WarriorsForWomen) and read about our Emotional Support Dog program at www.ESDOGs.com .
We are making a huge difference and your donations to Forgotten Coast K9 will determine the level of dogs we can deliver. The average Emotional Support Dog is $4500. The average service dog is $25,000. The average service dog that also protects is $35,000. The disabled veterans and first responders we help MUST have skin in the game for this to be successful. This is why we require the disabled veterans and first responders to put 25% of the money up, themselves. Anything given for free is worthless to the recipient and this is how we create near perfect success with out programs: skin in the game.
If a disabled veteran/first responder only needs an emotion support dog, they put up $1,125. The charity puts up $1,687.50 and Top Tier K9 matches that charitable contribution to train the dog, and the veteran through in-kind services. Forgotten Coast K9 then delivers the dog to the veteran so they have some additional expenses on delivery if the disabled veteran/first responder cannot pickup the dog themselves.
The same math applies to a disabled veteran/first responder who wants/needs a service dog or protection dog. 25% from the veteran, 50% of remainder from Forgotten Coast K9, and Top Tier K9 matches that donation through in-kind services.
Every donation (or combination of multiple donations) of $1,687.50 gets an emotional support dog for a disabled veteran or first responder.
Every donation (or combination of multiple donations) of $9,375 gets a service dog for a disabled veteran or first responder.
Every donation (or combination of multiple donations) of $13,375 gets a service dog that also protects for a disabled veteran or first responder.
