Semper K9

Mission- Semper K9's mission is to enhance the quality of life for wounded members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families by providing them custom-trained dogs. Using rescued and donated dogs, Semper K9 provides service dogs for psychiatric alert and mobility challenges free of charge to disabled veterans.

Semper K9 rescues dogs from shelters, trains them to become service dogs, pairs each dog with a veteran and trains the veteran to handle their dog. It costs around $20,000 and can take up to two years to custom train a service dog to meet specific veteran needs.

Additionally, Semper K9 provides support to train veteran-owned dogs to become service dogs along with ongoing maintenance training to ensure service dogs continue to meet their mission. We do this all at no cost to the veteran!

You can also get involved through some of their annual events. Including, the Upland Bird Hunt, Hero Hike, 9K for Semper K9, the Marine Corps Marathon, and Wreaths Across America.
