Adopt A Hero!!

Have you noticed there have been a lot of German Shepherds around our office lately? These are no ordinary dogs; these are American Heroes!!! The dogs at our office worked for a private security company in explosives and narcotics detection right alongside our military in Afghanistan. Clsoe to 100 service dogs have returned recently from Afghanistan and many are retiring due to age (7 years or older), workability, or medical issues.

Where do retired service dogs go? Hopefully, you may hold that answer!! These pets will be availble for adoption once they've been medically evaluated and approved. Would you like to adopt a hero??

iK9 is the organization responsible for training and transporting these animals. Clanton Animal Hospital is evaluating their medical conditions and boarding some of the ones that need more attention. Pipers Playhouse in Anniston is housing some of the dogs and is also coordinating all adoptions through Piper's Rescue.

While most of the dogs are German Shepherds, some of the dogs are Belgain Malinois Shepherds. Some retirees will be fine around children and some will not. Each dog has their own personality abd needcs a special family to live with.

We are excited to be a part of this re-homing effort for these 4-legged heroes. If you are interested in adopting please contact Piper's Rescue at 256-405-4261!
