110913-F-EL833-716Meadowlake Pet Resort & Training Center will hold a special ceremony to celebrate surpassing the fundraising goal for their Operation: War Dogs initiative. The hard-working staff members at Meadowlake will present Mission K9 Rescue representatives with a check totaling over $6,000. This donation is critically needed for Mission K9 Rescue to facilitate adoptions of retiring War Dogs; support returning troops and service dog organizations such as Military Working Dogs, Police K-9 units and Search and Rescue units; establish War Dog Memorials, and educate the public on the history of all U.S. Military War Dogs from all Wars.

The presentation is intended to recognize and honor those in the community who have selflessly donated, while raising awareness about the support needed to help active and retired U.S. military dogs. It will also serve to commend Mission K9 Rescue for the wonderful work the organization continues to do to help these animals.
