JASON & KYA
Jason & Kya's Story
Jason is a Veteran who struggles with severe PTSD. Kya had been surrendered to the Dog and Cat Shelter in late 2019. Shan, the Head Trainer, immediately recognized her potential. She was in “Boot Camp” for 10 weeks when Jason entered the program. There was an immediate connection.
Jason and Kya finished their training together at Shan's facility. At the end of April 2020 they passed all service dog requirements with flying colors. Jason recently sent a selfie of Kya sitting by his side while he was checking out at Walmart. Jason said it’s the first time he was able to go without a support person. He knows Kya has his back.
