In mid-March, one of our veterans lost his Canine Angel after she was fatally injured in a car wreck. Callie, a fully certified service dog trained by Canine Angels, helped him with balance issues and PTSD, along with round-the-clock moral support. Our veteran desperately wants and needs another service dog. Thanks to the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, we can all help.
Through April, every $25 donation to Canine Angels gets you TWO vouchers to any Pelicans home game (except opening day). Use them any time you’d like all season long. The face value of each ticket is up to $11, so it’s a great deal and completely tax-deductible. And you’ll be helping a hero.
FYI: In April, Canine Angels will celebrate its second anniversary as a 501(c) 3 serving Grand Strand veterans. Founder Rick Kaplan credits the generous spirit of the people here with making our mission a success.
We have placed dogs — all rescued from shelters — with more than a dozen veterans. Thanks to Rick’s training, a hundred more have found loving homes as well-behaved pets, which relieves overcrowding in local shelters. It’s win all the way around.
Besides service work, our Therapy Dog teams visit schools, nursing homes, and adult daycare facilities every week. The pack just returned from its second trip to Newtown, Ct., where the Angels offered comfort to hundreds of children and families, still distraught from the unthinkable evil that befell their town.
Many thanks for your support. We could not do this without you.
