Today is the first birthday of Gianni, my puppy. As I look at him and reflect on the way he has grown and how much love I have for him, I can’t help but think about all of the working Dogs out there. They started out as little tiny puppies who were born with a set of abilities that made them suitable for us humans to use in our world. These puppies didn’t volunteer for that role, but they are bred and trained to perform in difficult, sometimes deadly circumstances.
These Dogs serve the US Military, the Federal and State and Local law enforcement communities, the State Department, the BLM. the US Forest Service, FEMA, Fire departments across the country, and many other organizations that use them to help accomplish duties that benefit their human pack.
We need to take care of these amazing animals and we need to do so at a very high level. These Dogs deserve proper food, water, exercise, preparation and training, medical care, and the absolute best equipment we can provide to them to keep them safe and efficient in the duties we ask of them.
As you go about your normal day here in the US of A, think about the Dogs that are out there working on your behalf. Think about how they came into this world. Think about what we ask of them and then think about helping them in any way you can.
We are grateful for your support. Because of you, our supporters, we have accomplished much, but we’ve barely made a dent in the US working K9 population.
We need an “all hands on deck” moment to get as many K9s as possible under our umbrella of care and safety.
Please help us by donating here, or sharing our mission with your friends, both face to face and on social media. Please reach out to your local law enforcement and EMS services to see if they have needs for their working Dogs. Please let them know that we are here, waiting for their “ask” so that we can help take care of these amazing and precious resources.
