CURRENT CARE PACKAGE NEEDS

Each quarter, MWDTSA mails approximately 200 care packages to military working dog teams deployed in global combat zones.
You can help us fill these boxes through the programs below or by becoming a Sponsor.

AMAZON WISH LIST

We maintain an Amazon Wish List with items we’ll be sending to military working dog teams in the upcoming quarter. You can help by bookmarking this link and visiting often. Every item you donate helps support our care package program.

PALE HORSE COFFEE DRIVE

Purchase this 12-ounce bag of “First Bite” coffee, and Pale Horse ships it directly to MWDTSA for inclusion in an upcoming care package. Or, you can buy “First Bite” for yourself, and Pale Horse will donate a portion of the proceeds to MWDTSA.  Win-win.

This photo shows two pairs of the handsome MMinto socks. MMinto's profile appears in a repeating pattern in black thread on the socks. This image shows the two available colors: olive and grey.
SOLEDIER SOCK PROGRAM

When you buy these handsome “MMinto” socks for yourself or a dog-loving friend, the manufacturer supplies a pair of its “Thomas” socks for MWDTSA’s quarterly care packages.

YOU ROCK!

Holiday donation drive yields 2,700 dog toys!

In late 2019, Justin Melnick and his dog Dita, stars in the TV show SEAL Team, hosted a Holiday Toy Drive to benefit MWDTSA.

Individual supporters donated 900 toys with a total value of $12,600. USA-K9 matched these, two-for-one, for a total of 2,700 sturdy rubber toys!

Of these, we mailed more than 1,400 to MWDs at 138 U.S. military kennels around the globe for the 2019 holiday season. We’re sending 800 in our 2020 quarterly care packages, and the remaining toys will go to stateside military bases during 2020 kennel visits.

THANK YOU for your generous support of our MWD community!
