Cairo is now 12 years old! After 3 deployments and a well deserved retirement, help us to solidify his place in history with a spot on the Mt. Soledad National Veterans Memorial. It is the only veterans' memorial in America honoring U.S veterans living and deceased from the Revolutionary War to the present.

Cairo is a veteran MPC (multi-purpose canine) for the U.S. Navy SEALs. We completed deployments in both Iraq and Afghanistan. Aside from saving lives and limbs by detecting IEDs, Cairo was just one of guys. He was always interactive and would quickly lean in for a good back scratch. Cairo had the unique ability to work in highly intense situaitons and in the very same evening, cuddle up under a shared blanket with me. Words simply do not exist to describe the feelings I have for Cairo. He has done so much for so many.

Today, Cairo enjoys his days poolside with his Beagle brother in San Diego. Although I have also retired after 25yrs with the SEAL teams, people still ask about Cairo. In the SEAL K-9 Program, Cairo has a legacy. They do not know me, but they remember Cairo. He really was, and is, something special.

It has been my honor to serve with him. I am honored to share this life with him.

Thank you for considering donating.

Sincerely,
Lloyd Wimberly and Cairo

We are grateful for reaching our goal so quickly. Thank you!

Please know that funds exceeding our goal will be donated to an organization that supports veteran K9s.

There are so many four legged heroes out there that need unique care in their retirement. Thankfully there are special people that step in and fill this increasing need.

Your donation will be well spent.

Thank you again!
