K9 Veterans Day

Today is K9 Veterans Day, the day when all military dogs should be commemorated. This is an unofficial holiday, but the enthusiast make efforts to change the situation.
The United States K9 Corps were created on March 13, 1942.

Since then the dogs officially became the part of military service. Border Patrol K9s, Customs K9s, Police K9s, Secret Service K9s, Airport Service K9s and FBI K9s work daily to save and protect.

The Town of Atherton would like to honor all the military K9 veterans as well as our K9's who have served and are currently serving the Police Department (Karli and Qancy)
