Pets for Vets - Tuesday, May 27
This year’s Charity is Pets for Vets. The Pets for Vets program is dedicated to providing a second chance for shelter pets by rescuing, training and pairing them with veteran servicemen and women who can benefit from a companion animal. Medical studies have shown that companion animals significantly improve mental and physical health, including; reducing stress, depression, and anxiety. These are common symptoms experienced by many serving the military. Every veteran who is capable of taking care of a pet is eligible. Both the animals and the veterans have been through traumatic events in their lives and together they can help each other heal. The goal is to raise over $5000 in support of this very unique non-profit organization through our Charity Raffle and with donations dropped off at the Pets for Vets display set up beside the registration area.
Fisher House - Tuesday, May 27 - 1400-1630
Joint Base Lewis-McChord, 9999 Wilson Ave, JBLM 98433
The first project will be hosted at the Fisher House located at Joint Base Lewis-McChord. The objective is to have seven volunteers show our appreciation to our injured service members and to say thank-you by hosting a dinner for up to 11 guests. We will prepare a hot meal and have it ready when the veteran and his/her family return from a full day of medical therapy and rehab at Madigan Army Hospital. This is a wonderful opportunity for volunteers to make a direct impact on a veteran’s life as well as to interact/socialize with family members.

Our Veterans put everything on the line to protect our freedom. We may never be able to repay them for their sacrifice, but we can show them just how much we appreciate all that they’ve done.
