An all-volunteer 501(c)(3) nonprofit (EIN# 13-4346918), MWDTSA is dedicated to supporting Military Working Dog teams deployed with US military services. Each team consists of a dog and a handler, and their mission is force protection—explosives detection, security, tracking, patrolling, specialized search, and drug detection. They put their own lives at risk to save the lives of other soldiers every day.
MWDTSA has sent quarterly care packages to over 4,000 deployed teams since 2006. Each box contains treats and personal care items for both the handler and dogs. Since its founding, MWDTSA has provided an average of $15,000 in care package contents each quarter, raised over $25,000 in donations to honor fallen handlers and dogs, and conducted over 90 recognition/public education events and visits to schools and civic groups to promote Military Working Dogs.
