Eye Kandy Boutique is partnering with My Dog’s Care Center to create a new non-profit for veterans called The K-9 Six Project. This program will be pairing shelter dogs with veterans who are suffering. While service dogs can cost anywhere from $10,000 – $40,000 to train, The K-9 Six Project is partnering dogs that can offer emotional support to veterans at no cost to these veterans.
