Support Dogs for Veterans and First Responders

About Gateway K9


Gateway started from a dream many years ago, as a way to give back to those who have put their lives on the line for us.  


Gateway K9 is headed up by a team of professional trainers, with over 40 years of combined experience.  And we work closely with other organizations across the Midwest to continue our education and to provide the top service dogs for our veterans and first responders.  Our focus is on the quality of life we can give to a few veterans, not to how many dogs we can get out to our veterans.  Fighting to end the statistic of 22 veterans a day, taking their own lives from combat, and PTSD related injuries.


Our team is backed up with several dedicated volunteers that help keep our program going.  If you would like to join our team of volunteers at Gateway K9 please contact us.


We are a registered 501(c)3 funded 100% by donations.
