Hi, Y’all! We are the Baity Family! My husband Chris and I met in high school outside of the Atlanta area where we both were in MCJROTC together. Chris went on to join the Marine Corps and I (Amanda) went off to college. Read more about our personal stories here.

In 2014 we founded Semper K9 Assistance Dogs, a 501(c)3 charity that rescues dogs from shelters and trains them to be service dogs for wounded veterans. Since founding Semper K9 we have been on a rollercoaster ride that has not stopped! That is a good thing but at times can be overwhelming. Join us as we travel the country advocating for veterans, growing our nonprofit and most importantly, raising our family.


In early 2018, we got a visit from television host Mike Rowe and his camera crew was filming the entire thing! Mike had heard about Semper K9 and wanted to help us get started on a HUGE project that you will hear all about while you follow along.
