Mission Statement

Why do we exist? OUR MISSION

We believe Special Operation Force and law enforcement K9s deserve the highest level of care in retirement.

How do we carry out our mission for these special K9s?

The Warrior Dog Foundation was founded by Mike Ritland to fill a need unmet by most other military, police and contract working dog adoption organizations. WDF is a place for retirement and rehabilitation of retired Warrior K9s slated to be euthanized. We provide a rare sanctuary of last resort and as a result, our retired K9s often stay with us for many years, and some live out their lives with us.
