March 13th, is National K9 Veterans Day. This special day is set aside to honor and celebrate the service and sacrifices of American military and working dogs throughout history.

It was on March 13, 1942, that the Army began training for its new War Dog Program, also known as the "K-9 Corps," according to American Humane, marking the first time that dogs were officially a part of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Westfield Veterinary Group is proud to be the sole provider to the Union County Sheriff's K-9 Unit.
