Please Find My Dog announces their partnership with Companions for Heroes by pledging assistance in raising funds and helping pair dogs with veterans and first responders who suffer with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
Please Find My Dog co-founder Will Chase explains, “Every day 23 veterans take their own lives, and every 8 seconds a shelter animal is euthanized.” Chase adds, “Please Find My Dog is uniquely positioned to support Companions for Heroes, and we are excited to help them increase the number of military veterans they can serve with a larger network of dogs needing adoption.”
“This is what our partnership is all about,” stated David Sharpe, Companions For Heroes, Founder. “Please Find My Dog and Companions for Heroes are motivated to achieve mutually beneficial efforts,” he adds. “With this commitment, more military and first responders who suffer daily can receive help, while the lives of abandoned, abused, and neglected dogs can be saved. Together, they can share the incredible power of the human-animal relationship.”
To that end, Please Find My Dog and Companions for Heroes are pleased to announce that on September 29th, 2013, retired Technical Sergeant Byron Ballard of Myrtle Beach, SC, a 21-year Air Force Veteran who served in Afghanistan, was given a four-year-old Golden Retriever companion named Dixie.
Please Find My Dog is a subsidiary of Dog Scene International, with technology networking services that ultimately help find lost dogs quickly. Similar to the Amber Alert, Please Find My Dog helps reduce recovery time for lost pets by communicating information from its hosted large database of area pets with a large network of local shelters and rescues in order to improve the chances for a pet’s safe, prompt return. Please Find My Dog will help stop the killing of more than 4 million homeless pets each year by substantially reducing the number of pets in homeless shelters.
