Join the Women With Vision Council for lunch and a presentation featuring Lindsay Snyder, Director of Development at K9s for Warriors, as well as a special guest Warrior and K9 Service Companion.
The nation's largest provider of Service Dogs to veterans
Roughly 20 veterans die by suicide every day, and K9s For Warriors is committed to change that. Determined to end veteran suicide, K9s For Warriors (K9FW) provides highly-trained Service Dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma. With the majority of dogs coming from high-kill rescue shelters, this innovative program allows the K9/Warrior team to build an unwavering bond that facilitates their collective healing and recovery.
During the 21-day training process, Warriors learn and practice skills that allow them to regain their independence. The K9FW program goes further than handing over a leash and sending Warrior/K9 teams on their way — K9s For Warriors’ staff provides resources to veterans long before they walk through the doors, and the relationships formed during their stay remain long after they return home.
Currently serving as Director of Development at K9s For Warriors, Lindsay Snyder champions for United States veterans’ rights and access to mental healthcare. She heads the Florida-based nonprofit’s fundraising efforts, expanding the organization’s reach exponentially. Under her guidance, the organization has grown to Texas, planting down roots for a brand-new campus and construction of the world’s largest shelter to service Mega Kennel in Jacksonville.
The mission of the Women with Vision Council is to mentor, inspire and empower women in professional environment through education and collaboration to embrace their own vision, purpose and value.
