Retired Military Working Dog Assistance Organization (RMWDAO), was
founded October of 2011 in Universal City, Texas. RMWDAO was formed
after a push to get the military to reclassify Military Working Dogs
from “excess equipment” to “canine service members” and to help get
Military Working Dogs Medical Benefits after retirement. RMWDAO is a
nonprofit organization that takes donations to help cover those medical
costs after a MWD retires, so that tax dollars aren’t used.
