GAC Family Celebrates the K9 Hero Awards
Nov 11, 2021
Veterans Day Special
GAC Family will celebrate the “K-9 Hero Awards” as the network’s first-ever Veterans Day special, premiering November 11 at 8pm ET/PT. The special presentation is created in partnership with Project K-9 Hero, an organization dedicated to recognizing our nation's top performing Police and Military K-9 Heroes. “K-9 Hero Awards” showcases the incredible achievements and devoted service of Police K-9s, Military Working Dogs, Fire Department K-9s and Search and Rescue K-9s at the Local, State and Federal levels. Members of U.S. Congress join the awards presentation as K-9 Heroes are crowned in seven categories: Patrol Apprehension, Narcotics Detection, Tracking and Trailing, Firearms Detection, Search and Rescue, Accelerant Detection, and Explosives Detection. Award winning K-9s in each category will receive free medical coverage for life from Project K-9 Hero.
Project K-9 Hero is a national nonprofit 501c3 organization, whose mission is to provide medical
care, food, and death benefit assistance for our nation’s retired Police K-9s and Military Working
Dogs. Project K-9 Hero also helps K-9s who need a home after their service, through
rehabilitation and adoption. Project K-9 Hero is actively engaged with Members of Congress to
pass a law that grants federal funding towards the medical care for retired working dogs through
the K-9 Hero Act.
