Celebrate the bravery and sacrifice of all K-9s who have proudly served

By PoliceOne Staff

March 13 was National K-9 Veterans Day, and although its origin is tied to military working dogs (March 13 was also the official birthday of the US Army K9 Corps), it’s a time to celebrate the bravery and sacrifice of all working dogs who have proudly served in both the military and other government agencies.

One great way to say thank you to these four-legged heroes is to help support them during their service and after they retire. So in honor of these puppers, we’ve gathered five charities that focus on police and military working dogs.  Feel like doing a little more than donating? The TSA has an adoption program for dogs that aren’t quite up to snuff for government work or dogs who have retired from government service. You can find out more about that program here.

1. Mission K-9 Rescue

Mission K-9 Rescue is a non-profit focused on ensuring all retired working dogs get the post-service life they deserve, including reuniting working dogs with their handlers, rescuing them from bad environments, and rehabilitating dogs suffering from mental or physical issues. Donate here.

2. Kevlar for K9s

As you can probably guess from the name, this nonprofit focuses on providing K-9s with the gear they need to best protect them from harm. Donate here.

3. Warrior Dog Foundation

The Warrior Dog Foundation provides a last-resort sanctuary for retired working dogs slated to be euthanized. Many of these dogs spend the rest of their lives in the organization’s care. Donate here.

4. The National Police Dog Foundation

Founded by a cop, the National Police Dog Foundation provides services for both current and retired K-9s, including training and preventative and emergency healthcare. Donate here.

5. Project K-9 Hero
