Semper K9 Assitance Dogs

Our mission: Semper K9’s 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, Semper K9 provides service dogs for psychiatric alert and mobility challenges free of charge to wounded service members.

Driven by a desire to give back to America’s post 9/11 veterans, Marine Corps Combat Veteran Christopher Baity and his wife Amanda founded Semper K9 in 2014. The nonprofit seeks to heal the wounds of war by training service dogs to provide physical and emotional support to veterans and their families. These dogs enrich and restore lives by assisting their owners with overcoming daily challenges. The nonprofit gives those veterans with physical impairments dogs who can assist them with three or more duties to improve their health and mobility. Others affected by PTSD or related mental health difficulties benefit from dogs that help them recover emotionally and remain calm throughout painful times. Aside from providing service dogs, Semper K9 also has a Veteran Internship Program, Family Integration Program and a Service Dog Maintenance Training Program for service members who already have a service dog and need extra task training assistance.
