Working Dogs for Disabled Vets
Organized by: Matthew Ribis
This fundraiser has been created to find dogs from animal rescue organizations and train them to become working dogs for disabled veterans with traumatic brain injury or severe PTSD; the cost to train each dog is $10,000.00 according to Operation Delta Dog. Service dogs for disabled veterans will help reduce the high suicide rate; In the United States, 22 veterans commit suicide every month - this is unacceptable. In Massachusetts alone, there are approximately 50,000 strays that are collected every year, of which 50% are euthanized. Your donation will save two lives: it will prevent needless euthanization and will give hope to a veteran who needs a working dog .
Won't you please help us save these veterans and dogs. Thank you.
