2015 marks the second year Bayer’s K9 Advantix® II—the Official Flea and Tick Preventive of K9s For Warriors—is supporting our efforts to transform the lives of veterans and shelter dogs—and you can get involved! During March, April and May, when you buy K9 Advantix® II, Bayer will donate $1*—up to $150,000—to K9s For Warriors. Not only will you be helping America’s post-9/11 Iraq and Afghanistan War veterans—you’ll also be protecting your dogs each month from fleas and ticks by using the preventive our warriors use, too!
As part of its sponsorship, Bayer is supporting the training and adoption of 10 service dogs comprising the K9 Advantix® II Dog Team. Their first team dog is affectionate Arleigh, a beautiful Labrador cross who is smart, energetic and always ready to play. She’s been paired with a warrior from our January class!
In addition to buying K9 Advantix® II during March, April and May, you can join the cause by: visiting www.myk9myhero.com to watch inspiring videos about five K9s For Warriors graduates—our first featured warrior-dog team is Joe & Lilly—and learn about new dog team members; use your social voice to share www.myk9myhero.com and #BayerCares4K9s via Facebook, Twitter and Instagram; and follow @Bayer4AnimalsUS and @K9sforwarriors to stay on top of the latest news about the campaign!
