Great Service Dog News!
Some of you may not know that we raised $25,000 to sponsor a PTSD service dog for “K9’s for Warriors.” We named the dog “Dayton” to honor the fallen at our Oregon District mass shooting and the first responders who saved the rest.
The list of need is very long – “Dayton” started down the list at over 300 applicants. We are now at 42! Soon our Warrior and a partner dog will be selected and compatibility scores will begin. Then trust and partnership to follow. Then a graduation at the gorgeous facility in Florida. You can watch a video shot at Sinclair Chamber Community College south when our Army Captain and his dog, Star, gave a free talk about the need for dogs to aide Warriors. Watch the video: https://www.wdtn.com/news/local-news/group-raising-money-to-gift-service-dog-dayton-to-veteran/. K9 uses only rescue dogs. “A New Leash on Life” documentary is also streaming on Amazon Prime. This army captain and Star won an Emmy for the Amazon movie – “A New Leash on Life”, which you can also pull up and watch: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt8667750/.
So proud to be an official sponsor of a dog and K9’s for Warriors! Check out Captain Louis Belluomini and Star.
