We've rescued and reunited working dogs with their handlers from all over the world for over 10 years. We've saved over 1300 working dogs from horrific situations overseas and given them the retirement they deserve after a lifetime of service to humankind.  632 dogs have been reunited with their former handlers! 

With your help, we can continue our work and touch the lives of even more hero dogs!

Your funds are used for rescuing Military and Contract Working Dogs, Reuniting Veteran Working Dogs with Handlers, Transportation, Medical Care, and Boarding.
