K9 Salute Honors Canines Killed in the Line of Duty — and Gives Back

This company — K9 Salute — caught my eye because beyond making yummy treats for dogs, its goal is to honor those hero dogs who gave their lives in service, plus donate a portion of all sales to help veterans get service dogs and to help police K9s from all across the country get protective vests. On each treat bag, you’ll see a tribute to a dog killed in the line of duty. The dogs are from all different states.

“I contact the K9 unit and handler directly to tell them about K9 Salute and my mission and to see if they’d like to have their fallen K9 featured on a treat bag as a tribute,” explains founder Jessica Harris. “They provide me with the photo they’d like to use and a brief description that is provided on the bag. I’ve never had a handler say no. They are all so very grateful that someone even knows their dog was killed in the line of duty.”
