We often get requests from people and sponsors who want to help MWD and K-9 units with morale booster items and supplies. And, Save-A-Vet itself frequently ships supplies to canine units.
Meeting the needs of these units requires information that is current, specific and exact -- responsive to the conditions and limitations each unit faces at the time.
Because of this, we are maintaining a list here of groups and programs that are dedicated to this specific need -- who try to keep in contact with canine units and learn their needs on an ongoing basis.
If you find trustworthy ones that we have left out, or if you know that any of these programs are not keeping current and should be dropped from the list, please send us an email so we can keep this list up to date.
Both projects offer ways for groups, clubs, companies and individuals to get involved. They both also seem to try and stay in touch with deployed units and maintain current lists of requested items.
Kevlar for K9s and other Vest-A-Dog Network groups try to help military, law enforcement and homeland security canine units acquire protective Kevlar vests for their working dogs to wear like their human partners.
Miitary Working Dogs Cooling Vest Project tries to provide cooling vests and other protective gear such as Doggles, Muttluks and other items for dogs deployed in war zones in extreme climate conditions.
