True to Ann Norton’s vision and mission for her urban oasis, the Gardens provide a safe place for peace and tranquility and we embrace K9s For Warriors’ mission to impact the lives of veterans suffering from PTSD and other disabling conditions. The event for K9s For Warriors is an extension of our continued focus on mental health, veterans, and accessibility in the Gardens. We have profound gratitude to those who have sacrificed their service and lives for our freedom, and we look forward to introducing this lifesaving organization to the South Florida community.

The K9s For Warriors’ program is a three-week, full immersion training providing veterans with Service Dogs, equipment, seminars, legal instruction, veterinary care, housing, meals, and a lifetime of wrap-around services at no cost to the veteran. The majority of the dogs used are rescued from shelters around the country and trained on one of two of the organization’s Florida campuses.
