September Charity Spotlight on Dogs on Deployment

The Marine Corps has a motto "Semper Fidelis" which means "Always Faithful" "“ to the Corps, to one another, to country.

The word faithful (or loyal) also brings another image to mind...a dog. Dogs are known for the loyalty and unconditional love they bestow upon the humans who welcome them into their lives. Shawn and Alisa Johnson are a dual-military family who wanted to reciprocate their dog's loyalty when they were called to serve at the same time in different parts of the world "“ Alisa in Virginia for six months and Shawn overseas. Alisa desperately wanted to have JD, her faithful Australian Shepherd, near her. Fortunately, she was able to make arrangements with a distant family member (who lived near the Virginia base Alisa was serving) to foster her pup. Alisa was able to visit on weekends, and JD was happy living in the country with his temporary family. Spotlight Dogs on Deployment: To Nurture Your Pet Dogs in Times of NeedShawn and Alisa's experience inspired them to create a solution for fellow service members who found themselves in a similar situation and may not have friends or family to rely on. Thus, Dogs on Deployment was born. A website was built. A Facebook page was started. Dogs on Deployment is an online, listing resource and network for eligible military members to search for volunteers nationwide who are willing to board their pets while they're deployed. As a result of the Johnson's efforts, Dogs on Deployment has assisted over 700 military pet owners through boarding and financial assistance since founding in June 2011. In addition, $60,000 to needing military and veteran families for help with their pet's care during time of emergency or duress.

The mission of Dogs on Deployment is to give military member's peace of mind concerning their pets when it's time to deploy by providing them with the ability to find people willing to help them.

No pet should ever be surrendered due to a military commitment. Dogs on Deployment strives to provide financial, educational, and logistical assistance to eligible and deserving military families. The organization is accredited and has received many awards, and with a 5-star rating was named a 2015 Top Non-Profit. Each month, 4Knines chooses an animal charity to spotlight, and this month we will donate to Dogs on Deployment.  We hope you will consider making a donation to this worthy organization.  You can also support their cause by shopping in their online store, or for the common love of dog and country, support your troops by boarding their pets.

Searched for different ones, decided on this one. Exceeded all expectations. Bought one for a new care and another for our 2004 4 runner. Provides good protection for vehicle and our 140 dog. We travel and camp extensively also good for bringing thing back form garden shop.

Great product!

Does exactly what we wanted. We can easily raise a part of the seat to give our dogs better access to the rear seat of our pickup. And it's easily removed or installed when we need to put humans back there!

Great Cover - Great Company

The covers are absolutely the best and I have had quite a few over the years. I had a minor issue with my cover and asked if I could get it repaired. The response was: "Thank you for reaching out to us. Your cover is absolutely covered by 4Knines Lifetime Warranty!" I received a new one.

Perfect gift

I purchased this rear bench cover for a friend with two dogs that frequently accompany her to her barn. No problem with wet, muddy feet. Fits well and protects her investment in her car. The cover arrived promptly as promised.
