Mental Health for the Veteran Community is the primary focus for the Highway of Heroes
Hockey Game benefiting K4Paws Service Dogs. The Highway of Heroes Hockey Team made up
of Military, Veterans and First Responders playing against the Toronto Maple Leafs Alumni will
take place at the Leon’s Centre on November 2, 2019, at 1:00 p.m. Complimentary tickets are
available for Military, Veterans, First Responders, and their family members, for we know that
when one member of the family serves, the entire family serves.
Kingston 4 Paws Service Dogs provides trained service dogs and their continued handling
support to physically and emotionally challenged persons and their families, assisting them to
become more independent in their South-eastern Ontario communities.
The use of Trained Service Dogs in Canada to assist people who suffer from Post-Traumatic
Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a relatively new concept. Service Dogs are trained to perform tasks that help ease debilitating symptoms of some psychological impairment. These disabilities include,
but are not limited to, Acute Anxiety Disorder, Panic Disorder, Agoraphobia, Obsessive
Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Generalized Anxiety Disorders and Mood Disorders.
