K-9 Veterans Day ideas for March 13, 2013

They Served to Save They Deserve to be Remembered.

It could be cold in March, so indoors could be best.

Some will celebrate the Saturday March 9th,  as March 13, 2013 is on a Wednesday. But please do something on the 13th as well.

Involve the Military if at all possible & Civil Air Patrol, Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts,  4 - H clubs, ROTC, American Legion, VFW, Police K9, Search and Rescue, FBI, Customs, Secret Service, etc.

Do demonstrations by working dogs.

Have a Dog Parade, and decorate your local dog park.

Speak to the schools about war dogs/ get the kids involved.

Notify the press that the celebration is coming.

Do something for the dog handlers in the Military here and abroad.

Tell everyone you know about us.

Involve local dog shelters etc., as some mix breeds were war dogs in WWII.

Perhaps have something like a food drive for “dogs without homes”

Contact your Mayor and/or Governor about declaring March 13 K-9 Veterans Day in a proclamation
