So Proud to Announce: G.O.A.T. Pet Products partners with "Project K-9 Hero"

Project K-9 Hero, MISSION– To protect those who protected our families, communities and our America. Vision:– To ensure the best quality of life for our nation’s retired Military Working Dogs and Police K-9 Heroes through providing assistance with medical costs, food and end of duty services. Purpose:– To educate the public on the costs and responsibilities of adopting a retired K-9 Hero.– To help cover or offset all medical, food and end of duty costs for retired K-9 Heroes.–

To ensure each K-9 Hero is rewarded with health and the way of life that they deserve for their faithful and loyal service.Additionally:Retired Military Working Dogs and Police K-9 Heroes accepted into Project K-9 Hero will have up to $3,000.00 per year in medical costs covered for them. Project K-9 Hero will also cover the K-9’s food costs and have food shipped directly to the owner’s residence. Project K-9 Hero additionally provides $500.00 to the owner when the K-9 is deceased for cremation or burial service. Any remaining funds out of the $3000.00 annual medical allotment will go into our general emergency medical fund available to all K-9’s in our program for surgeries or other medical expenses that may exceed the annual benefit. This is all, of course, dependent on funding raised through donations.Project K-9 Hero aims to educate the public via professional speaking, conferences, mail and email on the costs and responsibilities that are necessary when adopting or caring for a retired Military Working Dog or Police K-9 Hero.

While a K-9’s medical costs are fully covered by their local, state or federal law enforcement agency when they are working, they are no longer covered for any costs once they retire. In almost all instances, the responsibility for caring for the retired hero falls solely on the volunteers who adopt the K-9. K-9 Heroes are worked until they can no longer perform their duties due to health reasons. In their older age of retirement, they need our help the most in making sure they are able to live a comfortable life and are able to enjoy their retirement for as long as possible.K-9’s accepted into Project K-9 Hero will be selected by the existing board members. Owners of retired K-9’s will need to submit an application, bio of the K-9’s career and several photos of the K-9 working and at home. The board will look at each application thoroughly and allow a retired K-9 in the program if the funds are available to support it.

Through your donation, we look forward to taking in as many Retired K-9 Heroes as we can support, ensuring a comfortable and enjoyable retirement in return for their dedication to supporting us and our communities. If you would like to learn how you can get your Retired K-9 Hero into our program, please email us a brief description and background on your K-9 to receive an application from our Board of Directors. http://www.projectk9hero.org/our-mission/ G.O.A.T.
