At K9s For Warriors, we procure dogs from a variety of sources, including animal shelters, rescues, dog donations, and we acquire dogs from select breeders. The majority of our dogs will always be from high-kill shelters as this is critical to our mission. We make it our mission to save two lives — a veteran and a shelter dog. Our procurement team tirelessly searches surrounding animal shelters, seeking suitable Service Dog candidates.
