Semper K9 is proud to announce the acceptance of Anchor into our Service Dogs for Veterans Program. Anchor is a labradoodle donated to our program by McCain Doodles. Anchor is named in memory of Henry McMahon, Lance Corporal USMC.

Henry was born on December 19, 1939, and raised in the Bronx NY. He enlisted in the US Marine Corps after high school and once honorably discharged, had a distinguished career at Citibank as a Vice President for over thirty years. He was a dedicated husband, father, grandfather & uncle, and above all, he was a man of faith and devoted catholic as he helped many parishioners at St Adalbert’s in Queens with a bereavement group that he charted with his wife in the 1980s & ’90s. He enjoyed sports specifically the NY Jets and NY Mets and loved all types of gambling whether it was daily scratch-offs, various football pools, or periodic visits to the casino.
