On Veterans Day 2021, World of Tanks held its first drive with K9s For Warriors, blowing through expectations with an incredible $25,000+ donation. This Memorial Day, World of Tanks is again teaming up with K9s For Warriors, the world’s largest provider of Service Dogs for veterans, to help them continue their work to combat suicide rates among veterans of the U.S. Armed Services. 

Beginning today, players of World of Tanks can support the amazing work they do by acquiring a “K9 Honor Pack”, via their direct contribution to K9s For Warriors.

Founded in 2011, K9s For Warriors has rescued more than 1,500 dogs across the country and paired more than 725 veterans with trained Service Dogs to mitigate symptoms of post-traumatic stress, traumatic brain injuries and military sexual trauma. The organization rescues, trains and pairs the Service Dogs with veterans, free of charge.

During their Veterans Day drive in 2021, the U.S. World of Tanks player community raised enough funds to sponsor and name a dog kennel within K9s For Warriors’ newly opened Davis Family Mega Kennel training facility in Ponte Vedra, Florida. Hundreds of Service Dogs-in-training will come through this kenneland eventually help save the lives of veterans in need.

“On Veteran’s Day 2021 we were blown away by the response of our players and proud that their efforts made such a large contribution to K9s For Warriors,” said Maxime Mashkov, US Publishing Director, World of Tanks. “K9s For Warriors is a force for good and we continue to be passionate about supporting their important work by offering the ‘K9 Honor Pack’.”

“We are incredibly grateful to partner with the World of Tanks community to support our veterans who have sacrificed so much for our freedoms,” said K9s For Warriors CEO Rory Diamond. “K9s For Warriors has the privilege every day to see the impact a Service Dog has on a veteran. With a battle buddy by their side, the veteran returns to a life of a dignity and independence. The 2021 donation from World of Tanks allowed us to build a kennel run for our rescue dogs at the Davis Family Mega Kennel. We are thrilled World of Tanks is raising money for K9s For Warriors for a second time, allowing us to continue changing veterans lives for the better and give new purpose to rescue dogs.”

The World of Tanks community can support K9s For Warriors with contributions to the organization. Donation amounts are traced, and World of Tanks contributors will receive one of three “K9 Honor Packs” based on level of donation.
