Mt. Hope K9 Warrior Rescue

These 12 heros served in Afghanistan and Iraq and are credited with saving thousands of lives.  They have thrived due to the care, nurturing, therapy, and medical attention they have received at Mt. Hope for the last  17 months.  
The government contract group said they would be here for 6-8 weeks. They kept promising the contract was being reviewed and signed every week even as late as June of this year.  The signed contract to put these highly trained dogs back to work would then pay for the expenses and care of these soldiers.  We were told in August of 2014 when they bill was still not being paid that we could not re home  these canines as they were government property and we would face federal prosecution if we did this. In mid June 2015 The contractors  then told us the dogs are too old now and they were going to get law enforment K9s to fulfill their contract.  They told us to dispose of them however we choose.  They could not pay their bill until the new contract was finalized with the law enforcement dogs.

These warriors were abandoned to us.  Mission K9 and US War Dogs organizations were contacted to take the dogs and reunite them with their handlers if possible. Many of these soldiers suffered from PTSD from their service and are not suitable for shelter adoption into families.  Many are also highly trained and need to be with those they know or put back to work.  
We are asking for donations to pay off this bill so this kennel can stay in business. and continue to be a resource for organizations that help in these situations.  The owner has also worked with the Michael Vick pit bulls and brought many back from their trauma through therapy provided.  

Please see our Facebook page Mt. Hope K9 Warrior Rescue for pictures of all the warriors.
