Veteran K9 Ranch – Building A Home for Heroes

We are SO PROUD of our New Houston Area Kennel for our Hero Working Dogs!

With any new facility there are needs for start up items to help make our kennel the best it can be for our Retired Contract Working Dogs, Military Working Dogs and Police K9’s.

So many have given toward the needs of the ranch! We appreciate you so much and will post an updated video soon! (Updated 5/21/2017)

Veteran K9 Ranch Start Up Needs

Upgraded Kennel Air Conditioning Unit – NO LONGER NEEDED

This was donated to MissionK9’s Veteran K9 Rescue Ranch by:

American Comfort Solutions – WWW.COOLAIRSAM.COM – Thank you SO MUCH!!!

800 ft. of 6ft. Galvanized 9 Gauge Chain Link Fence and Associated Hardware

Cost of the Fencing is approximately $6000 plus installation – This is for the perimeter of the property and is still an need, although not critical. (Updated 5/21/2017)

Upgraded Septic System – once Outdoor Runs are installed it will be a must have.

Cost of Septic Improvements are being evaluated at this time and when outdoor runs are installed a separate system will have to be in place.(Updated 5/21/2017)

Exhaust Fans for Air Movement in Kennel and DeHumidification

Cost of Exhaust Fans and Installation is $1500 for a pair of Louvered Fans – This is still a need but not critical. (Updated 5/21/2017)

External Doors for Kennel Runs

Cost of Doors and and Installation for all our runs is $6480 – Still a need but not critical. (Updated 5/21/2017)

Drywall Installation for External Kennel Run Doors

(Building is Metal, once holes are cut the insulation will be exposed.
Drywall is needed to prevent the dogs from being exposed to it)

Install and Materials are Approximately $2800 – This is still a need but not critical. (Updated 5/21/2017)

Vehicle for Veterinary Transport, Kennel Supplies, Etc.

We have leased a van to serve our needs temporarily – We can certainly use a vehicle specifically designed to transport dogs however the cost is high. (Updated 5/21/2017)

With any new venture, there are always start up expenses.

We thank YOU for helping us make our new facility the BEST it can be for our Retired Hero Dogs!

Watch the Video!

 

The dogs will enjoy the country setting and have space to exercise, receive needed Veterinary Care, and get rehabilitation as needed before going to Forever Homes.

Mission K9 Rescue directly operates the kennel with Professional K9 Handlers.

It will be a place for events, demos, as well as a spot to meet our Hero Dogs in the near future.

Year End Fund Drive – We Made It!

We made the matching grant and went over our goal!!!! Thank you so much! This was fully funded. (Updated 5/21/2017)

 

Each year since we began, Mission K9 Rescue has doubled in size. With that increase comes an increase in expectations from our supporters and an increase in spend as we have also doubled our work load.

Even with all this growth, 90% of your donations go directly to our work. Nothing is wasted and we want to do what you have asked us to do… and that is to help MORE Working Dogs!

We have an anonymous donor that has offered a $40,000 matching grant to help with transports and vet expenses for the year end.

If we raise $40,000 from our Supporters, we get the additional $40,000 grant. If not, we get nothing.

Our founders are in Kuwait NOW, bringing more dogs home and we have 16 more waiting!

Meet CWD Charlie!
He is in Kuwait now and coming HOME Thursday Nov 29th!

Why aren’t those 16 dogs coming home now you ask?

The answer is that we don’t have the funds available to bring them now.

This $40,000 matching grant will let us bring them ALL HOME and provide the needed care they will require prior to adoption.

PLEASE – HELP MK9 get this grant!

The dogs DESERVE to come home and live healthy and happy lives!

Thank you all for your support this past year – We cannot do what we do WITHOUT YOU!

Working Dogs in Service to America

A Salute to Working Dogs

With great respect and honor, we thank the thousands of brave Military Working Dogs that gave their lives working alongside American Servicemen and Women as well as those Human souls who also sacrificed their lives; including the ones whose names are written on this wall.

Mission K9 Rescue exists because of their sacrifice.

Mission K9 Rescue is the first line of support for Working Canines and their Handlers. We are boots on the ground, with a hands on approach, while fighting to change the laws in Washington in order to better the lives of these amazing dogs in their retirement.

We help with Transportation, Medical Care, and Forever Homes.

In 2014 we helped over 75 dogs with transportation and medical care, and you witnessed Handlers being reunited with their partners over and over again. We have helped Military Working Dogs, Contract Working Dogs, Police Canines, Prison Canines, Private Investigator Canines and U.S Customs and Border Patrol Canines. If a Working Dog of any kind needed our help we were there.

Mission K9 Rescue recognized the needs of these heroes and worked to make dreams come true.

Our dream is to do twice as much in 2015 and we need your help!

Your donations help reunite Hero Dogs with their Handlers, Rescue Contract Working Dogs from kennels overseas, assist in helping all working canines and give them all of the care they deserve.

Will you give to help Working Dogs?

Military Working Dog and Contract Working Dog Adoptions

Heroes are waiting for Forever Homes!

Thanks for considering a Military Working Dog or Contract Working Dog Adoption. All these dogs are heroes in their own right and deserve a loving retirement home and continued care.  You are embarking on a wonderful and rewarding relationship.

The process for adopting Contract Working Dogs or Military Working Dogs that have been previously adopted and need a new home can be found here: 

https://missionk9.wpenginepowered.com/working-dog-adoption-forms/

We cannot guarantee the availability of any particular dog, breed, or designated service origin.

MWD’s are adopted via the Lackland Air Force Base Military Working Dog Program.

Military Working Dogs may be adopted by the public.

MissionK9Rescue at times has Military Working Dogs that were retired, adopted, and for whatever reason have to be re-homed. No longer a government asset at this time, we do facilitate those adoptions.

MissionK9Rescue assists with transportation of retired Military Working Dogs and Contract Working Dogs from foreign kennels or stateside when requested by The US War Dogs Association of which Mission K9 Rescue is Chapter 6, Rescue Organizations we partner with, or via direct request from a former handler.

Handlers do not pay for transport when they contact MissionK9Rescue for assistance in adopting a dog they actually served with.

If you want to adopt a hero dog, please take a moment, follow the link for the working dog adoption form link above.

Once a dog is available that is suitable for your environment, we will reach out with more details.

Thank you for your interest in adopting a Working Dog! (Edited for Clarity 09/24/2014)
