THE STORY:


Like cancer care for people, cancer diagnosis and treatment for pets has made remarkable advancement through the years. As with any life-saving treatment, this level of advanced care has its costs. When a person faces cancer, there are numerous costs associated with care and treatment. Yet in veterinary medicine, less than 5% of our pets have health insurance. Until that percentage changes, a majority of these costs are carried by the pet owner. 


 The MiliDog Fund is being created to fill an existing to provide financial assistance for retired military working dogs and contract working dogs. These elite warriors are expected to work in the most austere of environments and face conditions that most human beings cannot survive. The K-9 units are vital in ensuring the success of every mission and operate in all conditions. Our mission is to ensure that every single elite warrior has a chance in the fight against cancer.


This is hand down the coolest job in the military. We have a bond with these dogs that are as attached to us as we are to them.  I have gone to war with this dog and I would do it again in a heartbeat.  I will go to the end of the world and back again for this dog, and I know he would do the same.  He knows how I feel about him, and he shows me as well.  It's more than just a working relationship.  And we do have those times when he knows it's okay for him to be a dog."

Air Force Staff Sgt. Joel Townsend, describing his relationship with  A-Taq, a 2-year-old Belgian Malinois.
