Warrior Dog Foundation

https://warriordogfoundation.org/

The Warrior Dog Foundation transitions our country’s working K9s from an operational environment into retirement. Providing mental and physical rehabilitation, and rehoming options to Military Working Dogs (MWD), Contract Working Dogs (CWD) and Law Enforcement K9s that otherwise would be euthanized.

Crossing the Rainbow

Warrior Dog Foundation works tirelessly to provide a dignified retirement, irreplaceable training, and appropriate placement of each individual hero. 

When the K-9 passes at the ranch, Warrior Dog Foundation sends the ashes to the previous family of the K-9, be it the previous handler, department, or donators. Along with the ashes, the families receive a portrait of the K-9. These are their stories.
