Friends of America's VetDogs is an all-volunteer community
service group founded in 2015 with the sole and express purpose of helping
honorably discharged veterans get a service dog through America's VetDogs. The
group is comprised of about 25 individuals who work tirelessly to bring
awareness about America's VetDogs and to raise funds to sponsor new assistance
dogs for veterans and first-responders with disabilities.
The group sponsored three puppies in 2015 ("Maddy", "Sarge"
and "Pepi"); three in 2016 ("Sully H W Bush",
"Sayville" and "Ruby"); four in 2017 ("Webber",
"Florence", "Ballard" and "Navajo"); five in 2018
("Brady", "Jennifer", "Jackson",
"Kelley" and "Norris"); six so far in 2019 ("Thornton",
"Annabelle", "Sharon", "Kettles",
"Byers" and "Dewey") and hope to continue doing this for
years to come. As of October 2019 they have raised more than $122,000.
Friends of America's VetDogs members name each dog they sponsor to honor an
unsung hero of our military; someone who has brought great honor or credit to
our military; or someone who has significantly helped a veteran-in-need.
Their major fundraisers include a Chinese Auction held every spring, yard
sales, comedy shows and other events. For more information, please contact
co-founders Cliff Miller & Patricia Summers either by phone (631-567-9493);
by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by mail (Friends of America's VetDogs,
c/o Cliff Miller, PO Box 18, Bohemia, NY 11716-0018) with any questions or
comments. Each of their major events are also posted on the America's VetDogs
calendar of events.
