PetMeds Spotlight: The National K-9 Working Dog Inc.

Today’s PetMeds Spotlight is on The National K-9 Working Dog Inc. (NK9WD). NK9WD was established because of the lack of benefits available to our retired Police K-9s. As Working Dogs they are taken care of by their departments but upon discharge they become a liability. The K-9 Officers are with their partners around the clock and become emotionally attached. So at retirement of course they want to adopt them, but along with them comes all of their medical expenses. The NK9WD believes no retired working dog should ever have to suffer discomfort or premature death because of lack of financial support.  As a 501(c)(3) Charitable Organization, the NK9WD helps to raise funds, conduct awareness programs, and make distributions related to support of working dogs, both active and retired, that protect and serve the public every day.  In addition to raising funds, the NK9WD also conducts public awareness workshops and events to help educate people about service dogs; how to deal with service dogs in public; who is considered a service dog; and what are the rights of service dogs and their handlers under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  Please visit the National K-9 Working Dog Inc. at: http://www.NationalK-9WorkingDog.org/
