Ripley's Red Trains Hosts K9s for Warriors

Part of the training for these service dogs is to ride the trains!

ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (July 12, 2016) -  This Saturday, July 16, Ripley's Red Train Tours is pleased to be hosting K9s for Warriors onboard the Red Train as part of special training for canines that will assist our military veterans.

Ripley's will host twenty trainers and ten canines onboard a special training exercise starting at 
10 a.m. at the 254 San Marco Ave location (the Old Sugar Mill Train Station).

K9s for Warriors is dedicated to providing service canines to our warriors suffering from Post-traumatic Stress Disability, traumatic brain injury and/or military sexual trauma as a result of military service post 9/11. Their goal is to empower them to return to civilian life with dignity and independence. The dogs being trained are also getting a new "leash" on life, as they are all rescue animals.
