It is with great sadness that we share that our longtime member, retired explosives detection K9 Rammo has lost his fight with cancer. We just learned that Rammo suffered a sudden decline in health and his family had to make the hard decision to let him go over the rainbow bridge. We will be closing out Rammo’s fundraiser over the next few days in order to pay for his first few chemo treatments and end of life services.
We wanted to thank everyone who has made a contribution to Rammo’s care. We wish it could have had a better outcome however we know that Rammo’s family cherished each and every day with him. – Paws of Honor
All We Want For Christmas Is A Cancer Free Ramo!
Rammo is a former explosives detection K9 for our Federal Government. Rammo retired at the age of 10 and now lives with his family. But Rammo and his family need our help, you see, when Rammo retired ALL of his benefits ceased including medical care.
He worked tirelessly in our Nation’s capital in addition to traveling extensively overseas, protecting his handler and saving countless lives using that highly-trained nose of his sniff out dangerous bombs. Rammo worked hard during his career and has recently developed serious, potentially life-ending medical issues.
Since July of 2019, Rammo has required 2 knee surgeries totally over $21,000.00 and now he has been diagnosed with cancer. The estimate for Rammo’s chemotherapy is $6,000.00-$8,000.00.
But Rammo is a trooper and with the love of his family and the financial support from Paws of Honor he’s going to beat this. There is currently a 90% remission rate for this type of Lymphoma but we need your help. Paws of Honor is a 501(c)3 nonprofit and we currently provide veterinary medical care and treatment to over 150 retired police and military working dogs across America. We have 1 paid employee and our Board of Directors do not collect a salary. 100% of your donation made to Rammo’s care will go DIRECTLY TO RAMMO’S CARE!
Rammo completed his 2nd chemo treatment this past week and suffered a minor complication which required a short hospitalization but he is back on track and will be receiving his 3 treat on Thursday Dec 26th.
Paws of Honor is dedicated to covering 100% of Rammo's care so even if you can’t donate we ask that you share our fundraiser and keep Rammo and his family in your thoughts and prayers this holiday season.
