Forgotten Soldiers

I want to pay tribute to all the military dogs who have served our country, they are the forgotten soldiers. These dogs protects us and give their lives without any recognition, the least we can do is take a moment to honor and remember them.

There is a wonderful organization, Save-A-Vet, to help military dogs that are injured or retired find suitable homes.

There are thousands of dogs being used by the military and law enforcement today. Unfortunately when they are injured or retired, many of them are unable to find suitable homes to live out their lives. Due to their training, a majority of these dogs cannot be adopted out by regular families. We're here to provide a comfortable home for these FORGOTTEN SOLDIERS.

Hi, I'm Danny Scheurer, Founder and CEO of Save-A-Vet nfp Inc. I am an Iraq veteran. Everyday our troops rely on our K-9 friends for protection. There were many times our bomb-sniffing canines saved our lives as we went about our duties. As a long animal lover, I passionately believe when our canines retire from their commission, they should live out the remainder of their days in peace. Many military and law enforcement K-9's are unable to be placed up for adoption due to their training, past experiences or injuries obtained in the line of duty.
This is when Save-A-Vet "THE OTHER FORGOTTEN SOLDIER" was born in my heart. Let it live in your heart. Our canine friends and partners will do anything for us. They protect us and give their lives to keep us out of harms way. Now they need our help to take care of them, to protect them, to give them a place to live after their work is done.

Save-A-Vet is a 501(c)(3) organization, set up to provide a comfortable atmosphere in which these Forgotten Soldiers can live out the remainder of there life. In addition, our goals once at 100% strength, is to provide disabled, injured and retired military and law enforcement veterans, housing and employment to help us care for these Forgotten Soldiers.
