In the spirit of 1776, the year the United States gained independence, a nonprofit organization called Dog Bless You is campaigning to help veterans gain the freedom that comes with obtaining a service dog—and helping homeless animals in the process.
Dog Bless You works with service dog organizations throughout the United States, such as Freedom Service Dogs, Canines for Service and K9s for Warriors. These organizations rescue dogs from animal shelters and train them for our wounded war veterans. And here's how you can help.
Now through the Fourth of July, for every 1,000 likes the Dog Bless You Facebook page gets, the organization will match a U.S. veteran with a new best friend.
Here’s how you can help!
- "Like" the Dog Bless You Facebook page.
- Share dogblessyou.org on Facebook or Twitter and encourage your friends and family to "like" the page, too.
It’s that simple! Each "like" brings a veteran one step closer to a new canine companion.
