Dublin Dog Foundation and Freedom Service Dogs Team up

August 12, 2010

As much as we cats hate to admit it, doggehs do wonderful things for people. The Dublin Dog Foundation is one organization that helps bring dogs together with humans who need them and they just announced a really cool program they are doing to support Freedom Service Dogs (FSD).

DDF was established in 2008 to foster the therapeutic and service roles of dogs in the development, support and inspiration they provide to their human companions. They work with national organizations to help promote and facilitate programs in a variety of ways. Their current project is working with Freedom Service Dogs, an organization that rescues dogs from shelters and custom trains them to assist a person with a disability. They place a special focus on disabled veterans.

DDF is supporting FSD by raising $20,000 for the care and training of one service dog who will be donated to one lucky veteran. They are raising money by raffling off a cool custom jeep. The vet who is awarded the service dog will pick the winning raffle ticket during a special ceremony on September 11.

Sigh. There are so many wonderful things about this program. Dogs helping humans. Rescue dogs given a second chance. Veterans. A wonderful way to honor September 11. The list goes on.

So, if you are dying for a custom Jeep and want a shot at winning one by making a worthwhile donation, check it out here.

P.S. The Dublin Dog Foundation is a sister organization to the company that makes these rad products. If I was a doggeh I would definitely shop here.
