The foundation’s goal is to raise enough money to pay for the training of one service dog for a Colorado-based disabled veteran.
“We are excited for Camp Bow Wow to be part of the Freedom Service Dogs program,” says Sharan L Wilson, executive director of Freedom Service Dogs. “It is highly significant to have such an influential pet services company help with this initiative – not only to raise money for training a service dog for a veteran, but also bring awareness to the program itself.”
Dan, a Vietnam combat veteran diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, will be matched with a service dog being trained with funds raised by Camp Bow Wow. Dan (last name withheld), who has been struggling with PTSD for over 40 years, decided to join up with a service dog after hearing from other veterans struggling with PTSD who have been helped by a furry companion, Wilson says.
Camp Bow Wow is accepting cash donations to “Operation Freedom Tail” through April 15 on the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation website, or at any of the Colorado Camp Bow Wow locations. The Bow Wow Buddies Foundation will match funds dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000.
