We are based in Houston, Texas. We are a recognized 501(c)3 Charitable Organization by the IRS, founded in 2013.
We provide assistance and support for Working Dogs worldwide. Our organization’s purpose for existence is to serve retiring and retired Military Working Dogs, Contract Working Dogs, and other Dogs who Serve as they may fit into our mission and scope. As of December 2021, we have rescued over 1100 working dogs from every corner of the world. We’ve reunited over 540 working dogs with former handlers and paid hundreds of thousands of dollars in veterinary care for these hero dogs!
Mission K9 Rescue operates under the laws of the State of Texas.
To Rescue, Reunite, Re-Home, Rehabilitate and Repair any retired working dog that has served mankind in some capacity.
Rescue – Any and all CWDs and MWDs as well as any other working dog that may need our help. Mission K9 Rescue is committed to saving them and giving them the retirement they deserve; whether it be bringing them back from overseas or rescuing them out of a poor environment stateside.
Reunite – Any retired working dog that has a handler that wants him, and has proven that they are the right home (handlers always get first preference) Mission K9 Rescue will see to it that the dog is transported to the handler.
Re-Home – Any retired working dog that does not have a designated handler, Mission K9 Rescue will work to find the perfect loving home for the dog.
Rehabilitate – Often retired working dogs have been in situations that can cause them severe anxiety and stress. Many retire with issues such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. These dogs need time with us to decompress and reintegrate into society. Mission K9 Rescue works with these dogs in order to make them suitable for adoption.
Repair – Working dogs train like professional athletes their entire career. When they retire, some have extensive medical issues that can become quite costly. Since they don’t receive retirement benefits, Mission K9 Rescue provides all veterinary needs while in our care.
