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:

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)
