Unfortunately, HK9 cannot accept:
- K9s that are not AKC registered
- K9s that are older than 14 months
- K9s that do not have a documented history
HK9 owes it to our Veterans and donors that the K9s we receive for the program are trainable, documented, and healthy. The current cost to train and place a K9 in our program is $18,000. We must do everything we can to ensure the K9s in our program are the most likely to be successful in such an important role that is designated to improve the quality of life for our Veterans for as long as possible.
