Spotlight on a Rescue or Charity: We Salute the Military Working Dog Foundation
We are dedicated to spreading awareness about pet related causes such as pet adoption. So we are excited to announce our new Tuesday blog series “Spotlight on a Rescue or Charity”, to pay tribute and honor animal rescue, shelters and charities. These are our unsung heroes across America dedicated to enriching, saving and nurturing the lives of animals in need. We hope you will champion our cause by barking the word about the importance of pet adoption and donating your time and finances to your local animal shelter or rescue. Be a voice, email us if you know of a deserving animal rescue or charity that should be spotlighted and recognized. With that said, we are proud to spotlight “Military Working Dog Foundation”
About Military Working Dog Foundation:
The Military Working Dog Foundation is not a government agency, but rather a 501c3 non-profit. They have no funding or say whatsoever in what police department or other law enforcement agency receives a dog for patrol/detection duties, nor do they have any say whatsoever in who receives a dog via the U.S. Military's adoption program.
The Mission of the Military Working Dog Foundation is to assist the Department of Defense Military Working Dog Center in finding suitable homes for military working dogs that become available for adoption because they are no longer capable of performing their military duties.
Because on occasion, dogs are available for distribution to police departments and other law enforcement agencies, the Foundation's mission is also to help this process involving law enforcement K-9 units. In most cases, the dogs made available to law enforcement would make excellent working dogs, but due to time restraints, the military is unable to continue training them.
The dogs available for private adoption are not your ordinary house pets. They are anything but ordinary. They have served in protecting our country or have been to military K-9 'boot camp" and are very special animals. Their goal is to aid the MWD Center in finding appropriate homes for the working dogs available for private adoption to the public, former handlers and other persons capable of properly caring for these dogs as well as law enforcement agencies having a special requirement for a trained K-9.
When funds permit they will:
- Provide support and protective gear to those dogs that are placed in law enforcement agencies.
- Provide "comfort supplies" (treats, special gear, hygiene kits, etc.) to military working dogs and their handlers that are deployed in foreign countries.
- Provide the necessary informational support services to those dogs that go to private homes
Please help them find acceptable homes and placement for these great dogs, so they can either retire in the company of a good home or continue working in police K-9 units and other law enforcement agencies.
You can help by spreading the word to people who love dogs and to your local police department. You can also aid by sending a tax-deductible donation to assist in their continued efforts.
