Everyday our troops rely on our K-9 friends for protection. There were many times our bomb-sniffing canines saved our lives as we went about our duties. As veterans who love animals and appreciate them as former comrades-in-arms, we passionately believe when our canines retire from their commissions they should be able to live out the rest of their days in peace with caring friends — just like we hope to do.

The need for Rescue

The MWD School at Lackland Air Force Base has a wonderful program to help as many of these dogs as possible be adopted out to loving homes — sometimes even with their former handlers. Many law local enforcement agencies make every effort to do the same for their K-9 partners.

Nevertheless, many military and law enforcement K-9’s are unable to be placed for adoption due to their attack training, field experiences, or injuries suffered in the line of duty (including the same PTSD that afflicts many of our fellow human veterans). These canine veterans need to be rescued or they are put down. This is the Save-A-Vet mission — to rescue these “other forgotten soldiers.”
