Semper K9 Needs Your Help

Rescuing Dogs & Veterans

Our mission is to enhance the quality of life for wounded, critically-ill and injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families by providing them assistance dogs. Using rescued and donated dogs we provide service dogs for psychiatric alert and mobility challenges free of charge to wounded service members.

Veterans Helping Veterans

According to the Veterans Administration, 834,463 veterans from OIF/OEF suffer from combat-related PTSD–that’s 30%.  Overall there are 10.6 million veterans living with combat-related PTSD.

Every 63 minutes, a Veteran commits suicide. That is an average of 22 lives a day…Every 11 seconds, an animal is euthanized in the US. Semper K9 is helping make a difference in those figures by rescuing dogs from the shelter and training them to be service dogs for wounded service members at no cost. By enhancing the quality of life for service members and their families Semper K9 is able to help them regain confidence and independence.
