These treats also honor and recognize Corporal Nathan Cirillo (1989-2014). His love of dogs, especially his rescues Jagger, Maya and Kaya, was this Foundation inspiration in recognizing Citadel’s choice to utilize dogs that need a home and purpose in life. This is in contrast to many service dog providers, that breed dogs ( even mixing purebreds!) for the sole purpose to find that one special dog that has certain qualities they seek. Then all excess dogs that don’t meet their criteria are then adopted out or sold. This may be true and sounds nice, but remember, for every adopted dog they breed, there are hundreds languishing and waiting for their chance for a forever home.
