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 generate funds to sponsor new
assistance dogs for veterans and first-responders with disabilities. So
far they have sponsored and named 26 dogs.
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"); eight in 2019
("Thornton", "Annabelle", "Sharon", "Kettles", "Byers", "Dewey", "Jay"
and "Bones"); three in 2020 despite the pandemic ("Skip", "Mac" and
"Sunrise") and hope to continue doing this for years to come. As of
December 2020, they had raised more than $155,000. 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.
