About Support Mission K9 Rescue - Saving Working Dogs

MK9 Winter 2024 Fundraiser - Help MissionK9 Keep Operating!

Handler Jake and MWD Iskra on duty

Mission K9 Rescue is a United States Nonprofit Organization based in Houston, Texas.

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 and given them the retirement they deserve after a lifetime of service to humankind. 

654 dogs from that total have been reunited with their former handlers! 

Over $2,000,000 has been spent on veterinary care!

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. 

You can search for us on Google or YouTube to see many of the heart tugging reunions between these Hero Dogs and their Military Handlers.

Jake and Iskra - Reunited!

Since January 2023, 42 more Military Working Dogs have been reunited with their Handlers.

We have spent over $40,000 for Vet care so far in 2024.

We need to provide normal care for the 35 dogs in our facility.

We need to fund our normal operations costs for the 1st quarter of 2024.


Over 93.6% of EVERY DOLLAR DONATED goes to our work. No wasted funds - EVER!
