The purpose of the Mission K9 Rescue Gala is to bring awareness and raise money to support the Hero Dogs who have served our country and communities so bravely.

The foundation provides monetary, transportation, adoption and medical assistance for retired military and contract dogs.

The event is open to general public who are:

  • Strong supporters of the military who want to help dogs who have fought alongside their handlers and have saved over 200 soldiers' lives per year.
  • Dog lovers who want to rescue or reunite hero dogs with their military handlers.
  • Avid readers of thriller/mystery novels who would like to get to meet some of their favorite authors
