For the past several months, Legends Pet Care Services has been looking into an organization that we could help by making a charitable donation to. Of course, we wanted to give to an organization that dealt with animals but also for someplace that served our military community. Being veteran owned and operated, we wanted to work with an organization that helped pets as well as veterans.
K9s For Warriors is the perfect fit! K9s For Warriors is the largest veteran service organization focused on providing highly trained Service Dogs to Warriors. To make this decision even better is that the majority of their K9s are rescued from shelters or surrendered by their owners. In saving these animals from abandonment or euthanasia, they give them purpose. By pairing a dog and a warrior together, it saves two lives- the dogs and the Warrior.
K9s For Warriors programs primary focus is to restore and support our veterans who have PTSD, traumatic brain injury (TBI), or military sexual trauma (MST). They support veterans by navigating a scientifically proven process, pairing them with a trained Service Dog, and supporting them during and after the program.
Our primary goal is to raise $1000 from September 1 to December 31. We will do so two ways- Legends Pet Care Services will donate $100 per month the rest of the year. We will also donate $1.00 from each pet visit we make from September 1 thru December 31.
Our secondary goal is to raise an additional $1000 via donations from our clients and others at scheduled events during the next several months. We will be sending out more info on this at a later date.
Help us help those who served and helped protect our freedoms so we can do the things we do every day. Serving our country was one of the greatest honors of our lives. Now we want to give back to those that served. What a better way to do it.
