Hi everyone. Today, as you well know, is the anniversary of an event that was truly heart wrenching and devastating. Fortunately, it was also an event that gave rise to a collaborative rescue and recovery effort that demonstrated so well the beauty of life and (one of) the amazing contributions that animals make to humankind.
To pay some of that back, I will be donating partial proceeds from the sales of my forthcoming pet safety tip books to three different animal-centric charities.
To mark this particular day, and to honor the service of the dogs and their handlers who helped out at 9/11 - and in so many ways both before and after - one of those charities will be National Disaster Search Dog Foundation. They are an amazing organization and are very deserving of this recognition and financial support! (Please learn more about them.)
For their tireless work and for everything they do for the human-animal bond and public safety, SDF will be receiving 5% of the (post-IndieGoGo campaign) proceeds from sales of the dog book :-)
I hope you will join me in my excitement for the support that we will be able to provide this wonderful organization!
Be well everybody. Have a great day, and #NeverForget.
PS - I will be announcing the other two charities as they are decided, so please stay tuned. In fact, there will likely be an opportunity for you all to help decide one of them! Please consider a financial contribution or help spread the word for my IndieGoGo campaign to publish my pet safety tip books… www.IndieGoGo.com/ThePreventiveVet. Every bit helps. Thank you!
