THE STORY:

I am running the Marine Corps Marathon on October 25th, 2015 in Washington D.C. and want to use my participation to raise money for a wonderful charity. "Puppies Behind Bars (PBB) trains prison inmates to raise service dogs for wounded war veterans and explosive detection canines for law enforcement. Puppies enter prison at the age of eight weeks and live with their inmate puppy-raisers for approximately 24 months. As the puppies mature into well-loved, well-behaved dogs, their raisers learn what it means to contribute to society rather than take from it. PBB programs bring the love and healing of dogs to hundreds of individuals every year. The dogs bring hope and pride to their raisers, and independence and security to those they serve." I chose Puppies Behind Bars to honor the memory of our beloved Allie who left us this past summer and provided us many years of love and support. I am eager to support PBB so that my fellow service members who have been wounded during their service to our great nation can experience the same love and support that Allie provided to me and my family. Additionally, I am eager to support PBB's mission of rehabilitating the inmates who train the service dogs by providing them with their honorable mission as well as the trained dogs' invaluable support to our law enforcement community. I researched PBB on Charity Navigator and was very impressed by reviews, ratings and history. I encourage each of you to visit Puppies Behind Bars' website @ http://www.puppiesbehindbars.com/home for more information. Please join me in supporting this wonderful charity.
