True Independence Day: Help a Soldier Get a Service Dog

Between now and the Fourth of July, use the power of social media to give life- (and spirit-) saving service dogs to veterans. For every 1,000 facebook, Tumblr, and Pinterest followers that Dog Bless You gets between now and Independence Day, they will give a trained service dog to an injured war veteran. The group will donate up to 76 dogs (the campaign is nicknamed the “Spirit of 76”) and so far they have already donated 23. Service dogs for returning soldiers can make the difference between a life of dependence and some domestic freedom, as well as a beacon of light for some with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, those who have lost limbs or sight, and they serve as that amazing best friend to wounded warriors. The healing power of a dog by your side has been studied and proven time and again, from blood pressure and stress limiting to being trained to perform vital mobility tasks…not to mention that intangible, bigger-than-words bond we create with them. This costs you nothing but a click, and can be the gift that truly gives life and light. Help place a dog into a home that desperately needs it. How easy is that?
