Camp Semper K9

semper-k9-vaHeadquartered minutes from Marine Base Quantico and with close proximity to Washington D.C., Semper K9 Assistance Dogs is in the perfect location to assist veterans across the country. According to U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Northern Virginia has a population of almost 800,000 veterans.

As we raise funds to construct our facility, located on 33 acres on the northwestern border of Marine Base Quantico, our location enables us to assist more veterans, rescue more dogs, and offer more services every year. With this facility, we will:

-Work with more veterans in need and their families

-Rescue more dogs to bring into our program

-Provide veterans and local residents with employment

– Teach our local, military-rich community what it means to give back to our service members

If you are interested in assisting with our build process by volunteering professional services of any kind, please contact us at See below for our facility needs.  CLICK HERE to read about Loveless Porter Architects and their commitment to Camp Semper K9.
