Warrior Dog Foundation
The Warrior Dog Foundation was established by Mike Ritland who fought as a Navy SEAL in Operation Iraqi Freedom and other deployments. He created WDF with the sole purpose of giving back to the Navy SEAL and special operations community with an emphasis on honoring the working K-9 military dogs.
WDF helps transition dogs from an operational environment into our state-of-the-art kennel facility. They strive to educate the public on the importance of K-9s in the combat environment, and showcase the level of sacrifice these dogs give in support of our troops. They care for each individual SOF K-9 with dignity and grace, including both mental and physical rehabilitation for the rest of their lives.
