 United States War Dog Association (USWDA) was established in 2000 by 5  military dog handlers who all served in the military . Representing the Marine Corps, Army and Air Force, they found a common bond through K-9 and formed an organization to honor war dogs; past, present, and future. USWDA s  mission is to  provide support throughout the life cycle of a military working dog and promote the distinguished history of their invaluable service. 


Over the last 21 years USWDA has donated to or gifted K-9 memorials to honor our war dog legacy, shipped over 30,000 care packages to dog handlers serving overseas, and we are currently supporting over 1,000 retired military working dogs through our prescription program. 2021 is a big transition year for USWDA as a new board members have started to phase in which also consist of military dog handlers who served overseas. Please follow us as this journey continues. We are very excited for the future of this organization.
