K9 Veterans Day
In the United States, we rest safe and sound at night thanks to the service of brave men, women… and dogs!
Every year on March 13th, K9 Veterans Day honors not only those in the K9 Corps, but also the Police K9s, Customs K9s, Border Patrol K9s, Secret Service K9s, Airport Police K9s, F.B.I. K9s, and other dogs that protect us every day.
Cesar Millan, the Dog Whisperer, often says that dogs need jobs. Few jobs are more important than those performed by these K9 Veterans. These dogs protect us from bombs, sniff out criminals, guard our borders, and protect our police force. Their intelligence and unwavering loyalty make them perfectly suited for the work, and the jobs they do are indispensable.
These dogs are true American heroes, but often, they go unrecognized. Only their human partners and families celebrate their accomplishments.
Let's acknowledge their contributions and thank them for their courage!
