Well-known actor and director Gary Sinise, has created a wonderful initiative meant to bring veteran canines to the forefront and honor them for their service.
Sinise already runs the Gary Sinise Foundation, an organization that seeks to honor veterans, defenders, first responders, as well as their families. Doing this, Sinise creates events, as well as shares plenty of information meant to educate and inspire others.
The Gary Sinise Foundation has all sorts of ways to give back to those who’ve served the country, some of these include providing meals for veterans across the country, building smart homes for wounded veterans, and so much more. And now, Sinise is adding heroic canines to the list of those he’s helping. Sinise came up with “Veterinarians for Valor” in order to help raise money and honor the wonderful dogs who are veterans as well.
To get this new endeavor off the ground, veterinarians from Texas A&M University’s College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences have partnered up with the Gary Sinise Foundation in order to provide free medical care for police K-9s, as well as service dogs who aid first responders, veterans, and those in the US military.
In order to help with this cause, people are being encouraged to donate since many people in these jobs wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for the brave canines who stand proudly by their side. That is why their quality of medical care is so important.
Donations can be a one-off donation or a standing monthly donation. The process is quite simple, just fill out some basic personal information followed by how much you’d like to give. It might also be a nice gesture to donate in memory of someone who was a big animal lover.
So, if you would like to donate to canine heroes, you can visit the Gary Sinise Foundation website in order to make your donation.
