Today is Veterans Day. Please take a moment on this 11th day of the 11th month at the 11th hour to reflect upon all of our veterans, past and present, two-legged and four-legged, who bravely defend our country and our rights. If you see a veteran, say "Thank You" for their service. Ask them how they are. If you are lucky, they will share a piece of history--their living history--with you.
Why not visit your local animal shelter and make a donation of food, treats, goods, or money in the name of a K9 soldier? Or check with the U.S. Military War Dog Association to see how you can help these military service dogs and their handlers of today by visiting their website HERE.
Also please visit the Save-A-Vet website, the Military and Law Enforcement Working Dog Rescue and Support site HERE to hear all about these amazing K9 heroes and how you can sponsor, support, and/or adopt one of these amazing dogs.
Thank you to our K9 Veterans...
