Mine Detection Dogs serving in Bosnia need transport help!

Three Mine Detection Dogs need transport funding from Bosnia to the USA. 

They have served their entire lives searching for landmines left from the violence of war. The work is tedious and exhausting, yet they make a difference! Because of their service, children can play again in fields without worry of being hurt or killed by unexploded mines.
 
 

Now, that are older and their work is done, the NGO tasked with mine clearing and caretaker for these great dogs asked MissionK9 to bring them back to the USA and provide them with care and loving homes. We are glad to rescue them and with your help they’ll be on a plane soon! We can’t wait to show you pictures of them in the USA!

Due their location (Bosnia), transportation options are limited. The cost to bring them home is $12,000 – Thank you for making this happen!

Please give as you are able – You’ll smile knowing you’ve helped rescue these heroes!

Bring Two Brave K9 Veterans Home!

BRING TWO BRAVE K9 VETERANS HOME

By Zita Ballinger Fletcher

We turn to you again to ask for help on behalf of two courageous veterans, who have served their country with no less dedication and sacrifice than soldiers in uniforms.

They are two loyal and hardworking K9 veterans–both far from their home in America. One of them is in Korea; the other in Afghanistan.

Your donations will give these dogs a chance to recover in the caring arms of people who love them. Your generosity can give the dog in Korea a much-needed rest at the family home of its handler, while that handler goes again to Afghanistan for another tour of active military duty.

Not all dogs can survive without for dogs, so be sure you do right medicines for the dogs.

And any dollars you can spare will provide much-needed, emergency medical treatments for the dog in Afghanistan, who sadly has suffered in the service of our country. Your donations will pay for immediate veterinary care and allow the dog to heal at our ranch until well enough to be adopted by a loving and responsible owner.

Any amount, no matter how small, will help.

Bring Dogs Home to America for the Holidays

By Zita Ballinger Fletcher Contract working dogs sacrifice their lives to protect humans, working tirelessly to detect explosives and narcotics. Owned and contracted by private companies, they are sent to foreign countries, where they spend long hard hours searching for dangerous materials. They often work in extreme temperatures and are given meager amounts of food. Jenny, shown in the photo, was one of these dogs. Like many of her K9 comrades, she suffered from abuse and overwork. She had no rest or play. She was kept in a large outdoor cage with nothing but sand and rocks. Many dogs die in such conditions. We were able to save Jenny’s life thanks to the help of caring supporters. We were able to pay for Jenny and two other contract working dogs to come home to the United States, where they were given medical care and love. Jenny had surgery on her knee, was placed in a caring foster home and has been adopted. We were able to save Jenny’s life However, our work is not done. There are many more dogs just like Jenny waiting to come home to America. They depend on us to bring them back safely. They must wait to be rescued, until we are able to pay for their homecoming journey and care. Sometimes we are not able to raise enough funds to bring these dogs back in time. Sometimes these dogs die waiting.

We know very well about the love and care these hard working dogs will receive from people here in the United States, and that is something we do not want them to miss. We try to save as many of them as we can. But it costs an average of $2000 per dog to pay for its travel out of certain regions of the world, board the dog for a short time during its recovery, and provide much-needed veterinary care.

These extraordinary dogs risk their lives to help humans—the least thing we can do is give them our help in return. Our goal is to bring more of these heroic and sadly neglected contract working dogs back home to America before the year-end. We can do it with your help. Any amount, no matter how small, helps.

Retired Hero Working Dogs – Help With Transport Home

Working Dogs are Waiting to Come Home!

From a Life of WORK to Homes with LOVE

We’ve worked SO HARD to get more dogs from Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan back to the USA that we need to raise transport funds in advance as we always have dogs waiting.

These brave Hero Dogs search Cargo and Equipment for Bombs and Drugs to keep us Safe at Home and Abroad.

They are highly trained Contract Working Dogs, specialized in Drug, Explosive and even Money detection.

They come from contractors that have failed or have financial issues due to lost contracts, etc and this puts the dogs in great danger.

The older dogs are the first to suffer.

All of these dogs need vet care (some serious) and they are not getting the exercise or food that they need.

The average cost to transport a dog from these foreign countries, provide boarding, health certificates, vet care and enrichment is approximately $2000 per dog.

YOU make all this possible – individuals are making the difference with these transports.

Since 2014, Mission K9 Rescue has transported HUNDREDS of dogs HOME and paid over $500,000 in Veterinary Bills to make them whole.

You ask us to do more and we always do!

We need your financial help to bring more home now – Thank you SO MUCH for donating!

17 CWD’S Remained In Kuwait – You Brought Them Home!

Remember These 17 CWD’s That Remained In Kuwaiti Kennels?

YOU Brought Them HOME!

AND.. we brought 24 dogs home, not 17!

They arrived mid October and you can see videos and many photos NOW on our Facebook page.

Not all Working Dog Contractors remain financially stable. When they suffer financially, dogs suffer too and are often left waiting for someone else to bring them home.

17 Retired Bomb and Drug Dogs are WAITING NOW in Kuwait – the LAST of the dogs from this company!

They are getting NO EXERCISE. Working Dogs NEED Stimulation – They get NONE!

The average cost to transport a dog from Kuwait, provide boarding, health certificates, vet care and enrichment is approximately $2000 per dog.

We are MissionK9Rescue – Google “MissionK9” or “MissionK9Rescue” to see our work.

THANKS TO YOUR GENEROUS DONATIONS – THEY ARE HOME!

CWD Belle Reunited with Her Marine Handler

Contract Working Dog Belle Reunited with Her Marine Handler

Sergeant Sam Wettstein was separated from his contract working dog Belle after a tour in Afghanistan. Not a day went by that Sergeant Wettstein did not think of Belle and when she was discharged early he was ready to bring her home.

Belle and Sergeant Wettstein spent numerous hours on missions that saved the lives of many Marines and service members. “I was at loss of words when I found out there was a chance to be reconnected with Belle,” said Wettstein. “I can’t explain the bond that you forge with your dog, your partner. It’s unlike any experience I have ever had.”

Wettstein and Belle were reunited at the San Diego International Airport.

Mission K9 Rescue through the generous donations of others and in collaboration with the American Humane Association, arranged the reunion in San Diego on August 1st, 2014.

There is no doubt that CWD Belle remembered her marine! They look forward to a long life that includes duck hunting.

Thanks to all who donated to make this reunion possible!
