Our Raising Awareness fundraiser runs from June 1-July 31 this year.
We are raising money for some amazing organizations and are excited to share their stories. In Minnesota and Wisconsin our recipients are Pets Loyal 2 Vets, Leech Lake Legacy and Midwest Animal Rescue & Services (MARS).
Pets Loyal 2 Vets
Pets Loyal 2 Vets provides veterans in Minnesota and western Wisconsin with highly trained therapy dogs at no cost. The dogs are trained to decrease service connected depressive episodes, decrease anxiety, and social avoidance caused by their post-traumatic stress disorder and/or traumatic brain injury service connected injuries. They work with local rescues, including Midwest Animal Rescue & Services and Heading Home K9 Rescue, to find dogs that are a good fit for their training program. Once trained the dogs are matched with a veteran.
Leech Lake Legacy
Leech Lake Legacy serves the residents of Leech Lake Indian Reservation by providing low cost spay/neuter and wellness programs for companion animals on the reservation where there is no access to veterinary care. They also provide a surrender and transport program for Leech Lake, White Earth and Red Lake reservations. The surrendered, stray and homeless pets are brought to rescues in population centers in Minnesota, which increases their chances of finding a forever home.
Midwest Animal Rescue & Services (MARS)
Midwest Animal Rescue & Services (MARS) believes all homeless pets deserve a chance, even medical cases. They have their own veterinary clinic where they provide low-cost treatment to the public as well as other rescues. They also bring low-cost vaccination and microchip clinics out to the community.
We would also like to thank our Minnesota and Wisconsin fundraiser sponsors.
