Military Mats for Veteran's Service Dogs
Organized by: Debbie Jennings
Thankful my son came back safely from Afghanistan where he served as a Marine, hearing of another Marine and his family who weren't so fortunate was very emotional. The family was able to bring Eli the bomb-sniffing dog their son trained and served with back home to Texas. My company, Designer Duds for Dogs, makes high quality wash and dry sleeping mats for dogs and cats. I sent a USMC mat to Eli and when I saw his photo on the mat, I decided all veterans with service dogs deserve to have one of these easy to care for and portable mats as a small thank-you for their service. I am working to provide military sleeping mats to all veterans who have received a service dog from "Brigadoon Service Dogs" in Bellingham, WA and to have some to give to future graduating dogs as they are given to their new veteran owner. The mats are made of fabric for the military service the veteran served.
