FUND A DOG PLEDGE
After 20 years of the War on Terror, the longest war in the history of our Country, our special forces, including the Navy SEALs have been engaged in decades of some of the fiercest combat. They have had some of the toughest assignments and fought bravely side by side with the rest of our soldiers. After so much combat, some our SEALs are now trying to make the transition to the civilian world while in some cases overcoming physical and mental injuries.Some of our warriors are in need of a service dog to assist in that transition. The bond between elite operator and elite canine provides the structure and fellowship many Veterans find lacking upon their transition to the civilian world, something they often feel is missing after leaving years of training and combat behind. We would like to make sure that every SEAL and every other veteran that needs a service or support dog, gets one. Working with Baden K-9 in Ontario, the Navy SEAL Museum K9 Project places dogs with SEALs with diverse needs, such as mobility limitations, traumatic brain injuries, and post-traumatic stress disorder, providing them with working dogs that dramatically improve their quality of life – physically and emotionally.
This program inspired Swim With A Mission to create K9 With A Mission, dedicated to raising funds to purchase service and support K9’s for our veterans. In 2019, we asked for support and our donors gave $255,000 to fund 17 service K9’s. So we are back trying again. This time, from July 8 – 10th, we are running a special fund a need program.
Each time we raise $15,000, another elite warrior or veteran will receive a service or support dog.

What People Are Saying About Our Events
THANK YOU!!! I was so impressed with the organization and logistical efforts of this great event!! It was a great day, and we’ll definitely be there to help again next year!
We were barely out of our kayaks when we were talking about which volunteer activity we want to do next year. Unbelievable when considering how much had to go into making the day run smoothly.

I was one of the 10K support kayakers, and I just wanted to take a little opportunity to thank you for putting on such a fabulous event. It was truly a pleasure to work with you folks and to support those who are willing to make the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe.
