Kai is a 1 year old male husky mix adopted from San Diego Department of Animal Services Bonita Shelter and generously sponsored by our Red Star Sponsor, the Professional Development Institute (PDI) of the American Society of Military Comptrollers (ASMC) from their May 2017 San Diego Conference! This beautiful husky has a great temperament and drive, and we knew we needed him for Shelter to Soldier™! Kai is a super sweet pup that loves people, dogs, and kids! He is always excited to train and likes to work for the reward of playtime with his tennis ball.

Kai has been matched with Warith, a United States Marine Corps Veteran. Warith suffers from Post Traumatic Stress (PTS) and has felt the impact of having a service dog even though the pair is still in handler training. Warith and Kai recently passed Kai’s Canine Good Citizen Test and will soon take their Task Test and Assistance Dogs International Public Access Test before graduation.
