About Semper K9 Assistance Dogs: Semper K9 Assistance Dogs is a combat veteran founded and operated 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides assistance dogs for wounded, critically ill and injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families. Christopher Baity, Semper K9’s Executive Director, is an OEF/OIF combat veteran Marine Corps dog trainer and kennel master with three combat deployments, one civilian deployment and two additional overseas deployments with military working dogs.

“The most important things to us were to utilize rescue dogs and ensure that our veterans are assisted at no cost to them,” said Baity. Semper K9 currently boasts 125 plus volunteers for a relatively small organization and recently purchased 33 acres adjacent to Marine Corps Base where they plan to build a retreat-style facility for out of area veterans and their families to come and train with their service dogs.
The nonprofit seeks to heal the wounds of war by training service dogs to provide physical and emotional support to U.S. Armed Forces veterans and their families. The dogs enrich and restore lives by assisting their owners with overcoming daily hurdles that are a result of physical and mental health challenges.
