Every week we will feature a pup(s) who could use some TLC.

Week of August 1 2016:

military dog

In honor of our military K-9’s, we will feature them this week, along with a few organizations that work to deliver care packages/necessary supplies overseas.  These pups are on the front line every day operating in search and rescue missions, detecting IEDs, defending our hooman soldiers and so much more. These dogs regularly work in 130 degree weather, on rough terrain that tears up their paws. They could really use any love and supplies you could send them.

Listed below are just a few of the organizations that make it happen!-
