Provide Ten Vets With Pets

FUNDED May 21 2013 – Thank You!

SgtDavidandCharliePets for Vets rescues dogs from shelters and trains them to be loving companions for veterans suffering from emotional or physical trauma. Truly this is a case of “we don’t know who saved who,” but we do know that love abounds.

Pets for Vets found three-year-old Charlie, a female husky, in a shelter. When they first met Charlie, the depressed young dog with badly matted fur looked like a mess and had been passed over for adoption. After a thorough cleaning and de-matting, Charlie entered the Pets for Vets training program.

Sergeant David Mills served for more than nine years in the U.S. Army. As a result of his time in Iraq, Mills suffers from PTSD, TBI, vertigo, and pain from bone spurs. One side effect of the PTSD was nightmares and anxiety around people.

Today, Charlie uses her Pets for Vet training to support her own special person with love. She is Sergeant Mills’ constant companion, always staying by his side. These days, Charlie is a happy dog and her owner is more comfortable in crowds and has seen his overall emotional health improve.

Your click will help ten other shelter dogs and ten other veterans find the same comfort and joy.

120,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

When it comes to early childhood literacy, low-income kids are at a disadvantage.

SitStayRead addresses this deficit by giving at-risk kids the chance to practice their reading skills in a fun, pressure-free way — with their very own canine reading partner! Your clicks give low-income children one-on-one reading sessions with SitStayRead dogs in a school or community program.

The Peruvian city of Ica was once surrounded by life-giving huarango forest, which for centuries held vital water reserves. Now, 98% of the forest is gone, illegally cut down and turned into charcoal. Without these resilient trees, the land is fast becoming uninhabitable desert, and endangering the lives of Peru’s inhabitants. Help reintroduce huarango seedlings to the Ica desert and bring western Peru back to life!

You can give these girls the chance for a future instead of a life of slavery.

132,000 daily clicks funded this project – thank you!

There are many blind cats living in shelters today and most will never leave. Even when these special cats are adopted, they are frequently returned, and more times than not, euthanized. Blind Cat Rescue gives immediate medical attention and a lifetime of love and care to forgotten felines who would otherwise likely lose their lives. If they have space available, they will never turn a cat away, but expenses are high for these special felines. Your clicks help give a blind cat or kitten the medical treatment they deserve.
