Do you adore working dog breeds and wish to recognize their service to the international community? The military is searching for adoptive homes for retired military working dogs. Adoptable dogs now reside at the training center at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland in San Antonio, Texas. Prospective adopters must be able to attend an interview and pick up their new best buddy at the base.
By adopting a retired military dog, you are actually helping these brave and heroic animals. You would be giving them a home where they can enjoy civilian life and you get a dog that is loyal, faithful, and a great joy to have around.
Each adoptable dog has undergone temperament testing to guarantee a smooth transfer into a loving family. Prospective families are required to discuss any existing pets with the adoption team. Any children in the home must be at least 5 years old. Information for adoption is available on their website so any questions that you may have regarding adopting a military dog can be answered.
Mission K9 Rescue, a non-profit organization that rehomes retired working dogs from civilian contractors overseas as well as military-owned and trained canines, is offering this fantastic opportunity to adopt a retired working dog. Many people have already trusted Mission K9 Rescue and have given a good number of retired military dogs a new home that gives a lot of love and care to the animals.
The charity also raises funds to transport retiring dogs back home from overseas. Many non-military contractor businesses do not pay for this. The charity also rehabilitates them mentally and physically in the United States, and then either reconnect them with their handler or find them a new forever home.
Adopting these amazing dogs can be your way of giving back for all the service that they have done.
