Paws for Patriots

 
 
Paws for Patriots   http://www.guidedogs.org/about-us/our-programs/paws-for-patriots/ seeks to use those special canine abilities to help veterans, both physically and emotionally. Paws provides several types of dogs ranging from guide dogs, to therapy dogs for those with PTSD, and facility dogs that visit those in the hospital.

Southeastern Guide Dogs Walkathon My retired LEO friend, Blogger Six (Warrior Class) has a son in law currently raising money for a Walk-a-Thon  (click on the words for the link) that supports Southeastern Guide Dogs, an organization that depends solely on donations to raise and train dogs for Paws.  His  family  truly felt that this community here would know of the amazing ability for dogs to help heal broken hearts, and so if you feel called to, they would love to invite you to donate and I wanted to spread the word so some vets who need the love and support of a good dog can get it.

I made a donation in memory of Barkley.  I hope some of you can do the same. If you don't have the financial means, as times are hard, simply spread the word or put up a link on your own blog.   Thank you again for the outpouring of love and support these last two weeks.

It helped more than you can imagine
