Support U.S. Military Working Dog Teams this Season of Giving

This holiday Purr'n Pooch Pet Resorts at both locations in Wall and Tinton Falls are collecting donations for U.S. Military Working Dog Teams who have been deployed to the Middle East. They need your help in supplying the gifts, which will be shipped in January.

The Purr'n Pooch Foundation for Animals will host a volunteer working day in January where the public and Foundation supporters will be invited to write letters to the dog handlers and prepare their care packages for shipment. Stay tuned for details. If interested in volunteering, email Koren Palazzo Spadavecchia at info@purrnpooch.com.

Visit the United States War Dogs Association for ways to help the organization throughout the year. Operation Military Care K-9 is one of its many wonderful projects. Be sure to also visit the organization's US War Dog Memorial. Dedicated on June 10, 2006, the Memorial, located guarding the gateway to the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Holmdel, New Jersey, consists of a bronze statue of a kneeling Vietnam War soldier and his dog, set on a black granite base. The memorial was designed by sculptor Bruce Lindsay, Architectural Division Manager at Johnson Atelier in Mercerville, New Jersey. A graduate of Bucknell University, Lindsay’s studio is adjacent to Grounds for Sculpture, the 22-acre sculpture park on the grounds of the former New Jersey State Fair. The U.S. War Dogs Memorial, while directly representing the War Dog Teams of the Vietnam War, honors all our nation’s war dogs and their handlers - past, present and future.
