A LITTLE ABOUT PROJECT K-9 HERO
We are so grateful for the service of our nation’s retired Police K-9 and Military Working Dog Heroes that we want to honor them in retirement, and ensure the best quality of life for them, by providing assistance with medical costs, food and end of duty services. We rely on donors like you to fund our project because there are no public funds for police and military working dogs.
We are now working with Congress to change that with the K-9 Hero Act.
