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 23 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") and hope to continue doing this for years to come. As of December 2019 they had raised more than $134,000.
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.
