Thank you for visiting my fundraising page!
I am raising funds to help the VetDogs, a Guide and Assistant Dog program. As you can see, I am a Guide Dog myself. I'm not a VetDogs dog, but I can certainly appreciate the special role these Guide and Assistance Dogs play in the lives of the People they are partnered with. I hope you can, too, and can donate a dollar or two to help this organisation and its very special dogs to reach their full potential.
Donating through this website is simple, fast and totally secure. It is also the most efficient way to support my fundraising efforts.
Many thanks for your support -- and don't forget to forward this to anyone who you think might want to donate too!
A little more about VetDogs:
The VetDogs project is a new program from the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind, Inc. Since its beginning in 1946, the Foundation has always served the needs of veterans, but it has done so as part of its overall mission to improve the quality of life for people who are blind or visually impaired.
In recent years, the Foundation has come to recognize that as veterans age, and as wounded soldiers return home from the global war on terrorism, there would be a greater need for guide dogs and specialized service dogs to help them maintain mobility and independence.
Thus VetDogs was born. We realized that it was important to consolidate our outreach to disabled veterans to address these increased needs. By building cooperative relationships with the military and the Department of Veterans Affairs, and by forging strategic partnerships with other guide and service dog schools to widen the options and availability of services to the veteran, we will ensure that disabled veterans receive all the benefits they need to live in dignity and independence.
