Air force officials are becoming increasingly worried about their retired Military Dogs not finding loving forever homes.
The lack of interest faced by the retired military working dogs posts their retirement has concerned the air force officials so much that they are pleading with the people for help.
They are asking people who are considering welcoming a dog into their homes to think of those well-trained retired K9s too.
Those dogs have worked hard all their lives to keep the nation, its people, and the homeland secure and safe, and they will be a great addition to any family who adopts them.
The K9s can work well with both military members and civilians. However, applicants need to ensure that they have a 6-foot fence, no kids under the age of 5, and no more than 3 dogs already in their homes.
Also, the person must have their vet listed out on the application and provide references.
The authorities have warned the potential adopters that processing the adoption application can take up to 2 years, which is why many people shy away from adopting them.
However, it is only to make sure that these skilled K9s are in trusted hands and not misused.
Anyone wishing to adopt one of this loyal K9s can contact the officers at [email protected] or call 210-671-6766. Please spread the word and help increase the chances of adoptions for our loyal K9 veterans.
