K9s for Veterans!

Written by Tri State Disposal. Posted in News/Events

This year’s annual summer charity drive was a resounding success as we rallied behind the incredible cause of K9s for Veterans. The mission of K9s for Veterans is to support veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) in their transition back to civilian life by providing them with trained service dogs. Throughout the campaign, we dedicated ourselves to raising awareness about the challenges faced by veterans with PTSD and to simplifying the process of obtaining service dogs so that they receive the help they urgently need.

The impact of K9s for Veterans is truly remarkable, as they not only provide free food and basic medical care for the service dogs throughout their lives but also save the lives of rescue dogs from kill shelters by training them to be these vital companions for our veterans. Witnessing the bond formed between the veterans and their service dogs, it’s evident that the question of “who rescued who” takes on a profound meaning. We wholeheartedly commit ourselves to being transparent and thoughtful stewards of the generous donations we receive, ensuring that as many veterans as possible benefit from our collective efforts.

Moreover, during the months of April, May, and June, Tri-State Disposal joined in the spirit of giving by pledging to contribute $5 from every dumpster they rented to the K9s for Veterans charity. This partnership has been instrumental in amplifying our impact, as each dumpster rental not only helps individuals with their waste disposal needs but also supports the mission of K9s for Veterans. The collective efforts of Tri-State Disposal and our generous donors have proven that by working together, we can create meaningful change and improve the lives of our deserving veterans and their devoted service dogs. Together, we can make a lasting difference for these struggling heroes and the dogs who devote their lives to them.​
