Remember why we are celebrating it.
There is a great program I wanted to share. It's called Patriot Paws:
Mission Statement:Patriot Paws is passionate, committed, and obligated in our goal to train service dogs that will enhance the lives of disabled veterans who have given so much for our nation, and to provide a service for other Americans with mobile disabilities. We are committed to build partnerships with community and state organizations which will allow us to give back to our community while enhancing the lives of all individuals involved.
They train dogs, primarily from shelters and rescue organizations, to help disabled veterans with everday tasks/chores/life. The primary training is done by inmates of the Texas Department of Corrections, and the whole program is run strictly on donations.
It's a win-win-win all around. A wonderful organization that I wanted to spread the word about!
