PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – Today, Senator Rick Scott visited K-9s for Warriors in Ponte Vedra Beach to tour the organization’s facility and thank the volunteers and leadership for their efforts to support our American heroes. K9s For Warriors is the nation’s largest provider of trained Service Dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and other trauma.

Senator Rick Scott said, “I was proud to visit K9s for Warriors today, an incredible organization with great leadership and volunteers who are fully committed to helping our veterans, especially those suffering from PTSD, transition to civilian life with the support of professionally-trained service dogs. Our veterans truly represent the best of what it means to be an American and none of the opportunities and freedoms we have would be possible without the dedicated service of these brave heroes. As Governor and now as U.S. Senator, I’m committed to making sure Florida is the most military and veteran friendly state in the nation, and organizations like K-9s for Warriors are helping us accomplish this goal by serving those who have so selflessly served our nation.”

Rory Diamond, CEO of K9s For Warriors, said, “We sincerely appreciate U.S. Senator Rick Scott’s support of our mission to end veteran suicide. He has been a champion of our organization since his time as governor of Florida, and we look forward to his continued dedication to our nation’s heroes.”
