Show Us Your Heart 2014 - Paws Fur Thought - Service Dogs for Veterans with PTSD

Posted on: January 30, 2014 by Global Pet Foods HRM

Not long after hearing CBC’s Pauline Dakin’s November 30th Maritime Magazine segment featuring Medric Cousineau, an ex-military describing his life with PTSD and how his service dog Thai impacted his and his family’s life, did we realize that this was how we at Global Pet Foods HRM hoped to show our hearts during our upcoming fundraiser.  Our 8th annual Show Us Your Heart campaign, which runs from February 1-15, 2014, is dedicated to Paws Fur Thought. Our goal is to raise as much money as we can to help pair as many veterans who suffer from PTSD with as many service dogs as possible (some service dogs are recruited from rescues or shelters before they enter their training program).  We believe this cause to be highly motivating and inspiring and we have no doubt that our customers will agree and support this cause wholeheartedly.  It is clear that the cause is extremely pertinent and the effort urgently required! Come into one of our three locations (Bedford, Dartmouth or Bayers Lake) and donate to Paws Fur Thought.  A $5 or more donation is matched by $1and you receive 10 bonus reward Air Miles, a $1 donation is also matched by $1.  Come show your heart and your support.  There is no doubt, it will affect and be appreciate by many hearts!  We look forward to seeing you.
