HOLLISTER, CA, March 9th, 2023, ZEXPRWIRE, Hold on to your leashes K9 Veterans Day is just around the corner, and at The Popular Pets, we’re gearing up to celebrate our furry heroes in the most exciting way possible.
We all know that dogs are man’s best friend, but did you know that they’re also serving our country? That’s right! There are over 2,300 active duty military dogs and more than 600 deployed overseas, working tirelessly to provide support to their human counterparts. And that’s not all – over 4,000 veterans are currently using service dogs to help manage conditions such as PTSD, TBI, and mobility impairments.
To honor the dedication and sacrifice of these amazing canines, we’re shining a spotlight on five incredible charities that are working tirelessly to improve the lives of K9 veterans and their handlers. From providing critical care and support to retired military working dogs to rescuing dogs from shelters and giving them a new purpose, these organizations are making a real difference.
So, who are these amazing charities, you ask? Allow us to introduce you to our top picks:
- American Humane: This nonprofit organization is dedicated to ensuring the welfare and safety of animals. Their military program, including the K9 Battle Buddies program, provides critical care and support to K9 veterans and their handlers.
- K9s For Warriors: This nonprofit organization provides service dogs to military veterans suffering from PTSD, TBI, and other conditions. Their program not only helps the veterans but also rescues dogs from shelters and gives them a new purpose.
