Gizmo's Gift

MWDs, CWDs, and Police K9s are retired for medical reasons such as hip dysplasia, PTSD, severe allergies or even degenerative myelopathy and require many veterinary visits once they have completed their service. The majority of K9s retiring are between the ages of 8 and 12 years old and have various special needs. With today’s economic financial hardships, it becomes an expensive responsibility owning one of these heroes. To help facilitate more adoptions of retiring MWDs, Gizmo's Gift is here to provide support for medical bills, transportation to their fur-ever homes, and items they may need to make retirement life more comfortable.

Too frequently people have stepped up to commit their home to a retiring K9 and then found the medical finances too much of a hardship. This causes them to break their commitment to providing a forever home for this retired K9. As a result, some K9s get passed from home to home, due to inexperience with handling these special warriors. Gizmo's Gift, believes if we can help take some of that financial worry off of their shoulders, more people with loving hearts will be able to provide the caring homes these dogs need and deserve.

Helping our nation's 4-legged heroes one dog at a time!
Military Working Dogs, Contract Working Dogs and all law enforcement K9s

Gizmo's Gift was officially established on 29 January 2014, however was started in August, 2013, after a push to get the military to reclassify Military Working Dogs (MWDs) from “excess equipment” to “Canine Service Members of the Armed Forces” and to help get MWDs medical benefits after retirement. Gizmo's Gift is a nonprofit organization that uses donations to help cover those medical costs after a MWD, CWD, and Police K9's retire, so that tax dollars aren’t used. We also help with adoptions as needed for those heroes who need help finding their fur-ever home. In Jan 2017 we started sending care packages to our deployed K9 teams.

Gizmo's Gift was created as a public benefit, educational, and charitable organization to (a) educate the public about the benefits to our Armed Forces of military working dogs; (b) financially support active duty and retired military working dogs; (c) pr
