NATIONAL K9 VETERANS DAY
Joe White contacted us in February 2009, asking for help in developing a nation-wide effort to honor K-9 veterans. Joe had already achieved the first K-9 Veterans Day in Florida. The NetPlaces Network agreed to help him seek national recognition for all military dogs.
Joe White and Barbara Andrews agreed that Customs Dogs, Search and Rescue Dogs, Border Patrol Dogs, Police Dogs, and Secret Service Dogs will be included in this recognition.
The official K-9 Corps was created March 13, 1942 and it was agreed to declare March 13th as K-9 Veterans Day.
Please join us in lobbying to establish K-9 Veterans Day as an annual tribute to all of America's military dogs. Either form, K9 or K-9 is equally correct and Joe's name choice, K9 Veterans Day, avoids any objections one may have to dogs being included in Veterans Day celebrated Nov. 11th.
"To this day dogs are serving on our borders every day, on both land and sea. Coast Guard dogs helped to guard the beaches way back during WW II." - Joe White
Several other sites are capitalizing on Joe's vision and the backing provided by TheDogPlace.org. All are seeking donations but few offer any useful information. We reached out to them October 19th offering to promote them in this edition. As of Nov. 5th, 2015, have received no response.
We do not ask for your money. We ask only that you join our lobbying effort set to begin after the New Year. We believe, with your political support, we may be able to see introduction of National K-9 Veterans Day legislation by March 13th.

This Editor personally worked with Joe. His selfless devotion to the dogs and veterans he served was/is inspiring. As dog lovers, we can not allow Joes vision of official recognition for K-9 Veteran's Day to become only a memory. His wife was unable to carry on after his death but TheDogPlace is now dedicated to Joe's mission.
Veterans Day is November 11th and the NetPlaces Network asks everyone to stop and think about the animals who serve our country and protect our freedom. From carrier pigeons to military mules and service dogs, we pay tribute to K-9 Veterans Day and to its founder Joseph White.
To all the brave hearts who volunteer to serve this great nation (and to all the animals that are drafted), we thank you for your service.
If you belong to a legislative group interested in helping to achieve recognition for all K-9 service dogs, please contact us.
As 2015 draws to a close and we note how little the Veteran's Administration is doing for the men and women who gave their body parts, emotions and health, we understand why our government orders military dogs to be "destroyed". Please help us help the K-9s who also serve.
