Our veterans deserve the very best support, especially when their service ends. The emotional aspect of their care can get overlooked, but Dogs2Dogtags is working to change that, and we’re thankful for the opportunity to assist in their mission.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (PRWEB) November 10, 2017
When a veteran returns home, the battle isn’t always over. According to the US Department of Veteran Affairs, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) affects anywhere from 11% to 30% of military veterans in the United States. One of the most effective ways to support these brave men and women when they return home is to pair them with dedicated service dogs, but the cost is often prohibitive; once a dog’s food, training, and medical care are factored in, a single canine companion can cost $30,000.
Pivot Point Consulting, a Vaco Company values the service of those in our military, as well as the sacrifices made by their spouses and families. In appreciation of their work and in honor of Veterans Day, the company is proud to launch a donation drive for Dogs2DogTags.
Rachel Marano, Pivot Point’s Managing Partner, explained why she was excited her company was raising funds for the charity. “Our veterans deserve the very best support, especially when their service ends,” she said. “The emotional aspect of their care can get overlooked, but Dogs2DogTags is working to change that, and we’re thankful for the opportunity to assist in their mission.”
Dogs2DogTags rescues shelter dogs, trains them to work as support animals, and then places them with a veteran who has been diagnosed with post-combat stress and anxiety. There is no out-of-pocket cost for those receiving a service dog.
Kicking off with a company donation, the Pivot Point team’s goal is to raise $30,000 and provide a veteran with a service dog. Those who want to help can contribute to the fundraiser here.
