About Us at K94Heroes
Welcome to our website. We are April Cunningham and Scott Gates. We feel honored to be able to do this work! Our passions are dogs and Freedom and so taking over the management of K94HEROES was a natural for us. Dogs have such an incredible impact on mankind and through our research we have found that their impact on soldiers who have suffered injuries, both emotional and physical, is profound. Research shows that the simple act of running your fingers through a dog's fur lowers your heart rate. Having a k9 companion can be the difference to a Service Man's life and we intend to make it happen! There is a need in this Country to help our soldiers when they come home from serving us and those needs are not being met. As a community, we can make a difference. Our mission is to provide Kansas Veterans with Kansas Service Dogs trained with money raised in Kansas. All donations stay right here in our community to help our own Veterans. Its' expensive to train a service dog but we are working at creating relationships with donors and trainers, and dog breeders and the shelters. If we all take each other's hands, and pool our efforts, we can change the way Kansas Veterans cope with life after deployment. Thank you in advance, for partnering with us!
