Semper K9 Assistance Dogs VA and Simply Desserts

Simply Desserts is a Proud Sponsor of Semper K9 Assistance Dogs

Simply Desserts is a proud sponsor of Semper K9. The mission of Semper K9 is to enhance the quality of life for wounded, critically-ill and injured members of the U.S. Armed Forces and their families by providing them assistance dogs. Using rescued and donated dogs, they provide service dogs for psychiatric alert and mobility challenges free of charge to wounded service members.


“We collect 10 percent of the tips each month and then I provide a check in that amount to Semper K9 at the end of each quarter. We also started selling dog biscuits and pupcakes, as well, which are all made with wholesome, healthy, natural ingredients.”

– Kimberly McDonald
