HELP AMERICA'S HEROES!

4th Annual Annapolis 5K Run & Dog Walk

    2014 5K Poster

Join us along with service dog program graduates, sponsors, active service members and students and alumni from the US Naval Academy for this annual family and pet friendly event to benefit America's VetDogs. The need to provide both guide and service dogs to veterans of all eras exceeds VetDogs' current resources. Through events like this, we can continue to give this incredible gift free of charge to a veteran in need.  Download the event brochure HERE. 

Retired Army Staff Sergeant Brian Pearce, a Purple Heart recipient, and his America’s VetDogs guide dog Gunner will be the guest of honor at this year’s event.  Brian suffered a traumatic brain injury and substantial vision loss while he was deployed in Iraq in 2006.
