In Loving Memory of Doyle Gonzales
On Friday, January 15, our father Doyle Gonzales passed on from this life. As my sister and I struggle with the heartache that comes with such a loss, we both felt the best way we could honor him was to give back in a way that could bring joy to others in the way our dad's dogs brought joy to him.
Our father was notorious for bringing home stray dogs, and it was dogs that played a huge part in comforting him through his own PTSD from the Vietnam War. We felt it was the perfect way to honor our dad's life.
We have chosen to support K9s For Warriors. This amazing non-profit organization trains shelter dogs and pairs them with veterans who are suffering from PTSD and other military traumas.
Ezra and I both appreciate everyone who has asked how they could help us. We have set up this page for anyone who would like to honor our dad and give back so that another veteran in need can receive all the benefits the K9s For Warriors program has to offer.
Our most heartfelt thanks for this ongoing love and support.
K9s' Mission: K9s For Warriors is ending veteran suicide and returning our Warriors to a life of dignity and independence. We rescue and train shelter dogs to be paired as Service Dogs for Warriors with service-connected Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and/or Military Sexual Trauma.
