Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The main issues is the need for corporate funding to keep up with the needs. We have been asked to do more to help retired working dogs but financially we cannot sustain at the level we are now. We need corporations to help us help more dogs in need. We hate to have to turn away dogs, but right now we just cannot help anymore then what we are doing right now. We want to continue to be able to grow but we have but we have reached maximum growth until we have more funding.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Rescue – Any and all working dogs 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, Mission K9 Rescue will see to it that the dog is transported to the handler.

Re-Home – 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. These dogs need time with us to decompress and reintegrate into society. Mission K9 Rescue works with these dogs in order to get make the suitable for adoption.

Repair – Often times when a dog retires, they have extensive medical issues that can become quite costly.

Mission K9 Rescue works with private contract companies, The United States Military, police agencies and local veterinarians to ensure that dogs who have spent their lives serving mankind and keeping us safe, receive the best retirement that is available.

We have opened Veteran K9 Rescue Ranch in Magnolia, Texas which houses and rehabilitates retired working dogs. This property allows us to take the time and care to help the dogs decompress in order to be able to be placed into a loving retirement home.

When we started in 2013 there were only 3 of working to get this organization off of the ground. We all worked long hours and were able to help a few dogs in 2014. That led to more dogs and more contract companies asking for help for their dogs in 2015, which proceeded to more in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

-We have reunited over 300 dogs with their handlers;
-We have saved over 400 retired working dogs;
-We now pay almost $350,000 each year in medical bills for retired working dogs;
-2017 we were able to purchase on own facility outside of Houston, Texas;
-We have hired employees to help care for the dogs in our rescue.
