This organization was co-founded by myself and Ken, a veteran dog handler from the Vietnam War. Our missions are all about the team because we support both ends of the lead: dog and handler. Having served in many capacities in Vietnam, Ken drew upon his emotional experience in wanting to make certain that no dog handler returned to the US ever again from a war zone with the feeling of sacrifice without appreciation. He also is an active dog person and wanted to support the dogs currently being deployed. Our missions are straight forward:
We support current dogs and handlers.
We support veteran dog handler events.
We advocate on behalf of retired military dogs in order to encourage their adoption.
We support memorials to honor the dogs and handlers and
We educate the general public.
Please know that we appreciate each and every donation and utilize them well. We welcome you to stop by our dynamic website at www.mwdtsa.org to see what we are doing now. An electronic newsletter is available to anyone who requests one; simply shoot us an email.
We appreciate your support on behalf of dogs and handlers doing a dangerous job.

I came upon this great organization while researching the establishment of one of my own non profits.
I read their mission statement only to find, I didn't need to reinvent the wheel.
One seldom comes across an organization of such dedication to support a niche segment of our military as these folks who are dedicated to the specific needs of our military working dog teams.
At this time, it is a 100% volunteer driven offering 200% of their effort.

Small but mighty and growing like a pup to a trained dog.

They Sit.Stay. and Support.

I do not expect to receive any other results from this organization than to be with a group of like minded individuals who aim to support a niche segment of our Troops on the frontline.

I think we are in the midst of correct change at this time. Mindset for growth in both volunteers, members and fundraising. Nothing needs to change at this time considering we are being led by a dedicated President/Board Chair.
