New Life K9s is a local nonprofit with benefits for all. They provide trained service dogs to veterans and first responders living with PTSD free of charge. The service dogs help their humans navigate the challenges of living with PTSD. The dogs are trained by inmates in California prisons, and offer them unconditional love, acceptance, and an opportunity to give back to the community. The recidivism rate of inmates who train service dogs for New Life K9s is 0%. (The California average is above 50%.) New Life K9s benefits everyone involved in the program, as well as the wider community.
