We’re excited to celebrate National K9 Veterans Day on March 13, the official birthday of the US Army K9 Corps. Formed in 1942, the K9 Corps allows thousands of dogs and their handlers to serve in the military with honor, dignity, valor, and the opportunity to protect the lives of their fellow soldiers.
We’re teaming up with K9s for Warriors, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing service canines to our warriors. Since its founding in March 2011, K9s for Warriors trained and rescued 550 dogs and paired them with 278 veterans who suffer from PTSD, traumatic brain injury, or other trauma as a result of military service.
From March 13 to March 19, we’ll donate $1 to K9s for Warriors for every photo of your “best friend” shared on Twitter and Facebook using #WGK9Salute.
Don’t forget to tag @WorldOfWarships! If we like your photo, you could win prizes in-game or for your favorite canine!
