Texas Game Warden K-9 Unit

Hard-working dogs from the Texas Game Warden K-9 Unit provide search and rescue services across Texas. These dogs work all hours, in all seasons, and don’t stop until the job is done. In the brutal heat of a Texas summer, a search and rescue mission can become a dangerous operation. That’s why we’re raising money to provide cooling vests for these hard-working canines.

Texas Parks and Wildlife Foundation provided funds to form the K-9 Unit in 2013.
