Back in October of this year we delivered a van full of supplies to Animal Control Officer Mark Rudewicz, for the Heroes and Hounds program. Heroes & Hounds is a program he founded to help the military dogs and their handlers, overseas. He started collecting donations and putting together care packages for these teams about four years ago.
It was such a pleasure working with Officer Rudewicz, and for such a worthy group of recipients the first time, that we had to help again!
This second time around we asked our clients in 20 of our North Eastern locations to help us collect donations for the program. We're sure glad we did, because we collected over $5000 in supplies for Heroes and Hounds to use in their care packages for the military canine teams spending the holidays in Afghanistan and Iraq this year.
We'd like to extend our thanks to everyone who donated, Officer Rudewicz for organizing this amazing program, and of course the military canine teams who risk their lives everyday.
