Give Back This Holiday Season With Dogs For Our Brave
I love dogs. I wasn’t raised with them but we got our first dog in 2014 and she has added so much to our family. Dogs can be the perfect family pet but beyond that, they can also be trained to help others in need. One example of this is service and companion dogs for injured service members. One organization that is helping bring these dogs to those who need them is Dogs for Our Brave.
Dogs for Our Brave’s Mission
The mission of Dogs for Our Brave is to provide service/campaign dogs at no cost to injured service members while service to our country. Their goal is to provide professionally trained service dogs as well as veterinarian care and food for the dog in most circumstances. Each of the dogs will be trained to do normal commands as well as how to turn light switches off and on, open doors, bracing, retrieval, pulling, and other commands that can help the special needs of each of the veterans.
How Can You Help?
This year you can help with a very special Veterans Day challenge that was started in conjunction with Veterans Day and Giving Tuesday which are both in November. I have accepted the challenge to raise $10,000 starting today, November 11th, 2017 and going until November 28th, 2017.
You can make a tax-deductible donation to Dogs For Our Brave and if the Soldier’s Wife, Crazy Life community can raise the $10,000, we will be given naming rights for an up-and-coming service dog.
In the end, this kind of program can truly help those who have served our country by providing them with a service/companion dog to help them in their daily lives. I have known quite a few soldiers who have benefited from having a dog such as this right by their side. It not only helps them but their families as they work towards moving forward after their injury.
Want to help? Head on over to my campaign page and make a donation. Every little bit can help, thanks!
