As a reminder, HeidiTown.com Gives Back campaign kicks off this February, and throughout the year, one Colorado-based nonprofit of my choosing will receive free HeidiTown ad space. On the first Monday of each month, I will highlight that month’s nonprofit.
The first recipient of my HeidiTown.com Gives Back campaign is Freedom Service Dogs, located in Englewood, Colorado. This nonprofit incorporates two things that are close to my heart – military veterans and rescue dogs.
Established in 1987, the mission of Freedom Service Dogs is to train dogs to aid disabled military veterans, and they have received national attention in the past several years for their work. One of the greatest things about this program is that all the dogs have been rescued from shelters.
These amazing dogs assist veterans who have become disabled during service, who have developed PTSD or other psychological trauma, or who have developed medical problems later in life after their service.
Find this nonprofit online at FreedomServiceDogs.org and learn about the program from veterans whose lives have been transformed by their service dog. You can also find Freedom Service Dogs on Facebook.
