United States War Dogs

Giving Back To Those Who Give So Much

Military Working Dogs have been used by the U.S. Military since World War I. Dogs, along with their volunteer handlers, trained in teams as scouts, trackers, and detection of hostile forces.  Dogs were used in WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Panama, Persian Gulf, Bosnia, Kosovo, Afghanistan and Iraq.

They are guarding and protecting our Military Personnel with Courage, Loyalty and Honor.

Today all branches of our Armed Forces are utilizing Military Patrol Dogs specializing in Drug and Bomb detection. There are approximately 2800-3000 of these canines stationed around the world with their Handlers in such places as Japan, Hawaii, Germany, Kuwait, Afghanistan, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and South Africa, just to name a few.

The United States War Dogs Association began Operation Military K-9 Care, in the 2002 by sending care packages to our US Military Working dogs and their Handlers including items to protect them from the harsh weather and terrain such as Doogles, items to protect their eyes from the sand storms, and cooling vest to protect them from the high temperature & heat stroke.

 

As a way of giving back to these brave and selfless soldiers (both the 4 and 2-legged kind), Squad FiftyOne will be collecting much needed supplies and gear for these troops. Requested items include: K9 Doogles, K9 Shampoo, K9 Blankets, Flea & Tick Medication, Dog Treats (made in USA only), K9 Grooming Supplies, Bully Sticks, Cooling Collars, and K9 Boots. Supplies are also needed for their human handlers including Toiletries, Batteries, Stationary, Personal Hygiene products, Snacks, Coffee, Reading Materials.
