Debbie Kandoll is the founder of Military Working Dog Adoptions that is a private non-profit organization. Although there is NO CHARGE for the actual adoption of a Retiring MWD, issues arise such as a retired Military Working Dog (MWD) needing domestic/international transport or an adopter needing help with a MWD's medical situation or even the purchase of medicines in certain circumstances. Ron Aiello is the president of the US War Dogs Association.
MWD Adoptions also GLADLY REHOMES any MWD needing a new Forever Home, and many times we find ourselves driving cross-country to retrieve or rehome one of our Retired Heroes. Your donations will fund our efforts to help Retiring Military Working Dogs to find Forever Homes! On behalf of our MWD Heroes.
”I just wanted you to hear this from someone who's right in the thick of everything with these MWDs about just how much these dogs are loved while they're working. They really do get royal treatment that most people don't have the opportunity to see. The handlers love them and so do the vet staff. Yes, they are kept in kennels. No, they don't get to go home with someone every night...but while they are a military asset, they really aren't treated like property. I've seen big strong military policemen reduced to tears when their dog was too hurt to be able to go on. I've seen an entire room full of policeman and veterinary staff tearing up like children because of it. These dogs are the center of attention while they are MWD's, and they are the number one reason that veterinarians exist in the military. It's the part of my job that I take the most pride in.” Animal Care SGT, U.S. Army
Kirk Stange debunks the myth that adoption cases are usually simple. This is based on article on Illinois Divorce Attorneys Blog dated 1/3/14 titled Dad files racketeering suit over alleged wrongful adoption and another on St. Louis Father's Rights Divorce Blog dated 2/28/12 titled Update: Missouri father wins six year custody battle. Both these articles show how adoptions can often extremely contentious cases because an adoption results in the rights of one or both biological parents being terminated.

Tonight on The Gist of Freedom www.BlackHistoryUniversity.com, we'll talk with Jamel Robinson, founder of the Jamel Robinson Child Welfare Reform Initiative!
1837-1915 Amanda Berry Smith devoted her life to the ministry of the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church. Her most noted achievement is the opening of the first orphanage for black children in Illinois.
In 1899, the orphanage opened its doors to homeless African American girls. The 12-room brick house that served as the orphanage was the first of its kind in Illinois.
The community at large was receptive to Smith’s evangelical message and supported the presence of the orphanage. By 1910, the building housed 33 children, up from 12 in 1900
In Harvey, Illinois, a suburb founded by temperance groups south of Chicago, Smith took up the duties of the national representative for the WCTU, and wrote her life’s story. An Autobiography: The Story of the Lord’s Dealings with Mrs. Amanda Smith, the Colored Evangelist was published in 1893. Through book sales, donations, and lecturing fees, she began to raise money for a new cause: an orphanage for black children. She founded and distributed a small newspaper, The Helper, in order to generate publicity and income for the orphanage and other worthy charities
In New York City, there are nearly 14,000 children in foster care, with almost 6,000 new youth entering the system every year. Of those youth, approximately 1/3 are between the ages of 13-19, and less than 20% expect to be adopted. That equates to 1,100 youth aging out of the foster care system in New York each year without a permanent home, family or support network.

She receive a Bachelor's degree in Social Work from Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas and a Masters in Social Work from the University of Oklahoma.
