Mission K9 Rescue
"There’s an assumption that these working dogs are automatically being taken care of after they leave service but that’s not the case. A lot of them are stuck in kennels — not just in the U.S., but overseas. We really need to get them back. We want to honor these dogs that have given their lives for us. We want to make sure they come back and get the retirement they deserve." - Mission K9 Rescue
