Retired explosive detection dogs were recently welcomed home after serving tours in Kuwait thanks to the dedication of the Mission K9 Rescue, who partnered with the United States War Dogs Association (USWDA) and the Petco Foundation. George Bush Intercontinental Airport (IAH) served as the backdrop for the four-legged heroes first step on American soil.
Upon their return, Mission K9 will work to re-home, rehabilitate and repair the 13 retired working dogs that have served mankind. After giving the dogs time to decompress and reintegrate into society, Mission K9 will work with the dogs to identify a loving home environment to give them the retirement they deserve in time for the holidays.
Since 2014, Mission K9 Rescue has returned 53 retired working dogs to the U.S, and all have been paired with loving families. The organization has a goal of bringing 16 additional dogs back to the United States by the end of February.
