Dogs For Our Brave Helps Our Veterans (And How You Can Too)

This post is sponsored by Dogs For Our Brave. All opinions are my own.



My husband was a military dog handler.




So he knows how important the relationship between a dog and a human is. He spent hours training with his dog. They trusted one another. They knew they'd keep each other safe. They had a strong bond.






It's one reason why I knew I wanted to work with Dogs For Our Brave. It's an organization that provides service/companion dogs at no cost for our injured military members. After all, they deserve only the best for all they do for their country. And sometimes they can use a furry friend.






I love that Dogs For Our Brave rescues dogs from shelters and puts them through a comprehensive training program before pairing them with soldiers. No service member is EVER charged because 100% of all costs, which includes rescue, the training I mentioned, dog food, care, medications, and daily care are covered by Dogs For Our Brave. Most of us know how dogs are like more than pets--they're family members, because they're there when you need them.





Veterans Day is tomorrow, and I would love to raise money for this wonderful organization. If I get at least $10,000 in generous donations, I'll even get to name a dog. (For some reason Rufus keeps floating around in my head.)

If you have it in your heart to give something, you can click here. You can donate as little as $1. Just know when you donate, you are helping both an animal AND a service member.




So please. Consider donating.

And remember our veterans. Always.
