K9s For Warriors is expanding in Nocatee! The nationally renowned program is the country's largest provider of service dogs for veterans. K9s For Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, and/or Trauma as a result of military service post-9/11.
Jed Davis, President of DDI, and Roger O’Steen, Founder and Chairman of The PARC Group, recently donated an additional 5.5-acres in Nocatee to K9s For Warriors to build the largest canine training center of its kind.
In 2014, The Davis Family and The PARC Group donated the land for their current 9 acre training facility. Here, in the heart of Nocatee, K9s For Warriors serves veterans from around the country by pairing them with service dogs that will assist them in making the transition back into civilian life.
"This new expansion will allow us to save nearly 400 additional dogs a year," K9s For Warriors shared in a recent Facebook post. "The entire team at K9s For Warriors are so thankful for the impact that this tremendous donation will have on the warriors and rescue dogs that we serve."
The dog training facility will be located in western Nocatee, at the intersection of US1 and Nocatee Parkway, near RaceTrack Road. K9s For Warriors has not released a construction timeline yet.
