Monument to Military Working Dogs
For the first time in U.S. Military History, working dogs have been elevated to National Monument status by congressional law. The actual bronze statues of the four primary dog breeds and dog handler are going on tour across America in a patriotic trailer. The mobile tour will depart from Los Angeles and make appearances in several cities before reaching its final destination in San Antonio, Texas. Military Working Dogs deserve to be honored because they have saved thousands of American lives since WWII, and at the same time provide companionship and support to our active duty service people. The National Monument will be dedicated in October 2013 at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio, TX, where the military working dog teams are trained.
Help us raise $1 MILLION!
Natural Balance® has partnered with the Petco Foundation to raise one million dollars to honor Service Dogs across America. There are many types of Service Dogs. This year, we are highlighting and honoring Guide Dogs and Military Working Dogs for the inspiring work they do in changing lives.
Guide Dogs provide safe mobility, loving companionship and restore confidence to their handlers through the gift of sight.
Military Working Dogs support the war on terror, safeguard military bases and detect explosives before they inflict harm.
The annual fundraiser has always supported just Guide Dogs, but this year, in addition to raising money for Guide Dogs, funds will be raised on behalf of Military Working Dogs as well.
