Spike’s K9 Fund was founded by James Hatch, a retired Special Operator. James did multiple combat deployments as a handler and a shooter with working Dogs. The first K9 that he handled was “Spike,” the Fund’s namesake. Spike, along with all the other K9s in the logo (represented by red stars), saved the lives of James and his teammates.
After retiring from the service, James oriented his life around the training, care, and preservation of working dogs. Learn more about the Spike’s K9 Fund mission at www.spikesk9fund.org.
