A NON PROFIT WORKING DOG RESCUE ORGANIZATION
From the battlefield
to your backyard!
Is always...What's Best for the Dogs!
Patriot K9 Rescue is a non profit organization that raises funds to care for retired Military Working Dogs, Contract Working Dogs and Retired Police K9's.
We operate a small facility in Central PA where we help to transport, care for, and provide a comfortable, loving environment for these unsung heroes, while they await their forever homes. We provide them with veterinary care and a stable environment for them to decompress and adapt to civilian life. These dogs have been through a lot and it takes some time for them to acclimate and become suitable for adoption.
A dog's life is short enough, they work hard, they save lives and ask nothing in return. It is said that most dogs spend 90% of their time, just waiting for their humans to come home. Please, Help us to Help Them!
LET'S NOT FORGET, THESE DOGS ARE VETERANS TOO AND WE AIM TO GIVE THEM THE CARE AND THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE!
Some of our Services
We believe that all non-profits should help one another. After all, it should be about what is Best for the Dogs and nothing else! Pictured to the right is Officer Flanagan who was so kind and took time out of her busy day, every day to visit Leo at the shelter where he was surrendered. This month we are raising money to support the Watsontown Borough Police Department's new K9 Unit. Eddie will soon be joining the department and will need a Ballistic vest and Narcan Kit and we are happy to be able to provide that for them to keep Eddie safe. Stay tuned to see pic's of Eddie once his training is complete! Eddie is being donated by another non-profit The Throw Away Dog Project. What a wonderful thing, when we all work together amazing things can happen!
We placed Leo in a loving forever home thanks again, to non profits working together for the love of a dog!
UPDATE: The Watsontown Police Dept ended up getting Mariska a Belgian Malinois that was trained at Shallow Creek Kennels in PA. Here is a pic of Mariska in her new vest.
Duke was another Retired Police K9 that had a loving home, but health issues with Duke's owner left him unable to care for him. We knew we had the perfect match for Duke, and we are so happy to see the light in his eyes with his new family.
If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs please fill out the application. Keep in mind each of these dogs may have special needs and you must be dedicated to their comfort and overall well being.
If you are a local Police officer in need of safety equipment for your K9 Unit or are interested in starting a K9 Unit, feel free to contact us. We would be happy to help raise funds for your needs and bring awareness of how hard these dogs work.
