Ron Wise, representing Warrior Dog Foundation says "Being someone who has worked in the law enforcement field for over 20 years and have worked with and trained Police K-9's I have a special place in my heart for The Warrior Dog Foundation.
The Warrior Dog Foundation was established by Mike Ritland who fought as a Navy SEAL in Operation Iraqi Freedom and other deployments. He created the Warrior Dog Foundation with the sole purpose of giving back to the Special Operations K-9 Community."
Sarah Figueroa and her team at The Warrior Dog Foundation are thrilled to compete with Ron Wise in this month's Dog of the Month Contest! Sarah say's "Warrior Dog Foundation is dedicated to serving the special operations K-9 community. The SOF K-9s deployed with these forces are of the top tier in the working-dog world. They are expected to perform in the most austere of environments and face conditions that most human beings cannot survive. The SOF K-9 units are vital in ensuring the success of every mission and they strive to educate the public on the importance of SOF K-9s in combat, showcase the level of sacrifice these dogs give in support of our troops and rehab them with the goal to re-home.
Once these Warrior’s have completed their service and for whatever reason, are unable to continue on with their handler, the Warrior Dog Foundation helps to transition these K-9 heroes from an operational environment into their state-of-the-art kennel facility. They then ensure the care of each individual SOF K-9 with dignity and grace, including both mental and physical rehabilitation for the rest of their lives.
Their motto is so very true:
“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.” "
My contest has ended, but you can vote for the current month's participants.
