Kinetic donates $10 to Mission K9 Rescue for every bag of dog food purchased through Tractor Supply Co. in August 2020

HOUSTON, TX, August 10, 2020 /Neptune100/ — Now through August 31, 2020, for every bag of Kinetic Performance Dog Food purchased from Tractor Supply Co., Kinetic is giving $10 to the important work being done by Mission K9 Rescue — an animal welfare nonprofit group dedicated to saving the lives of retired military and other working dogs.

“Any Kinetic Performance Dog Food ordered off of [through the end of August], we’re actually going to donate ten dollars to Mission K9 Rescue for every bag sold,” says Kinetic co-owner and co-founder Dave Dourson. “Mission K9 Rescue is really kind of a unique organization. What they do is work with retired working dogs, from the military to [other] canine dogs that are performing security services at either our facilities overseas [or in the U.S.]. … And what they do is they actually bring the dog back to Houston, Texas and they rehabilitate the canine. Then what they do that’s really kind of neat — and why we were really excited — is they pair the dogs up with [forever homes]. Sometimes, they’ll pair them up with the handler that [originally worked with] them. … It’s a fascinating group and a great group of people, and this is something we feel we can give back[.]”

“We’re raising funds to take care of these dogs — to bring dogs back from all over the world where they are stuck in kennels after retirement, and to provide medical care for working dogs who have worked like athletes their entire lives and now have injuries and health issues. It can be really costly to get them ready for adoption,” explains Mission K9 Rescue president Kristen Maurer.

“Plus,” Kristen adds, “just like with two-legged soldiers, four-legged soldiers can come back with emotional issues. Some of them have been isolated their entire life, and they need to learn how to get along with other dogs and people. They need special rehabilitation. These dogs were drafted into what they did; they didn’t choose it. They have selflessly given their lives to protect our soldiers, our first responders, and our citizens. And we feel like they deserve the best retirement we can give them.”
