Your Working Dog Radio hosts, Eric @vanessk9 & Ted @ted_summers, sit down with Joe Gionti of K9 Heroes 4 Heroes.
This is our second episode from the Hold the Line Conference Series and we talk with Joe Gionti from K9 Heroes 4 Heroes, which is an incredible charity. When you listen to this episode, you can hear Gionti’s passion for helping those who wore the uniform get the dog they need! K9 Heroes 4 Heroes was started in January of 2021, and their mission is to to provide service dogs to veterans and first responders. They talk about Loki, who is a GSD out of Diehl Police K9 Training Center, trained as the demo dog for veterans and first responders at K9 Heroes 4 Heroes, and Loki is the face of K9H4H. The gents discuss the importance of selection and background of service and why that is extremely important.
The team at K9H4H believe that no amount of money can truly repay our veterans and first responders for what they sacrifice for our country. So, what they saw as an opportunity to help, they quickly learned was an immeasurable act. Connecting dogs with veterans and first responders has had a powerful impact on overall mental and physical well being. There’s nothing quite like a bond between man and dog.
Gionti talks about their current fundraiser, the Benno 2.0 Fundraiser; a minimum of $50 get you an entry into the milestones raffle. Please head over to their website and learn more about Benno and his handler, Trent McDonald. Trent is a friend of the podcast and has been on an episode!
