Working Dog Health and Welfare Act Passes Senate

Posted by Editors on January 25, 2024

The Working Dog Health and Welfare Act has passed the Senate and is in line for House consideration. The bill, the first to be passed in 2024, helps federal working dogs by ensuring neglect and abuse are detected and that dogs get medical and emergency care, exercise, food, water, rest, “vacation,” and post-retirement medical needs. The dogs in question detect explosives, narcotics, and missing persons. They also patrol and help with navigation.

These essential government workers deserve these basic benefits for doing their extraordinary work. It’s a bipartisan bill, and team members strongly endorse its passage in the House. Agree? Contact your Representative and let them know you want them to vote yes on S.2414!
