September 7 2019
Everyday our troops rely on our K-9 friends for protection. There were many times our bomb-sniffing canines saved our lives as we went about our duties. As veterans who love animals and appreciate them as former comrades-in-arms, we passionately believe when our canines retire from their commissions they should be able to live out the rest of their days in peace with caring friends -- just like we hope to do.
Saveavet takes Military & Law Enforcement working dogs deemed unsuitable for adoption by their agencies for a number of reasons including health, training and work history. We then place them on secured facilities owned by Saveavet throughout the country and hire disabled veterans that meet our special criteria to live with and care for these other forgotten soldiers. We DO NOT take any animals from civilians. All Saveavet dogs come directly from agencies ONLY.
Since we are 100% volunteer with no government funding this takes time and volunteers. If you are interested in helping with current projects, please feel free to contact us.
We are proud to be partnered with the Hyatt Regency, our premier host for the 5k Dog Dash. Use code "saveavet" for discounted room rates and daily specials.
