The time has come for our 2nd Annual Vets with Pets Food Drive. We were able to serve 76 veterans in 2017 and also participated in a variety of community events to serve our veterans with pets. We want to double those numbers in 2018! Our beneficiaries for 2018 will be two non-profit organizations that support veterans with pets: Veterans Village of San Diego (VVSD) & Active Valor. Both organizations push to provide purpose to the lives of those who served our great country to include their furry companions.
A veterans best friend is often their pet that stands by their side 365 days out of the year. Homelessness is a big issue that affects the lives of veterans everyday. San Diego has the second highest home...less veteran population in America and often times a pet accompanies that underserved veteran. Due to financial constraints, veterans are unable to provide for themselves and their pets. Basic animals rights include food, water, shelter, healthcare, and basic necessities that are needed to allow a pet and veteran to live a long life filled with love and joy. Relieving the financial burden from a veteran in need will assist them and their pet tremendously! We will be accepting donations for dog & cat food, leashes, collars, bowls, pet toys, brushes & combs, pet carriers, and the list goes on! Bring your pet and lets turn this into a great community solution oriented event. Stay tuned for more details to come and help us spread the word by SHARING the event link & fundraiser page.
Stay tuned for information to come! A gofundme page will be created soon as well. Please RSVP on the event link.
