Project:Troop Dogs’ purpose is to send care packages to the military war dog (MWD) teams overseas.
There are an estimate 2700 war dog teams in the military and about 700are in the Middle East. These amazing dogs are trained for patrol, search, explosive detection and apprehension.We first learned of these Troop Dogs and their handlers from Ron Aiello, president of the US War Dog Association. The care packages we send contain needed items for both the handler and the dog. We will continue to send care packages as long as they are requested.
We sincerely thank the wonderful families and businesses who have already donated items and money to help this project become successful. We need you to help us continue to be successful. If you would like to help, please visit our ‘Items Needed’ page to see the items we are in need of.

Military War Dog Promise
My eyes are your eyes to watch and protect you and yours.
My ears are your ears to hear and detect evil minds in the dark.
My nose is your nose to scent the invader of your domain.
And so you may live, my life is also yours.
