October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

Nearly half of all domestic abuse victims delay leaving because they don’t want
to leave their pet behind, yet as few as 10% of domestic violence shelters accept pets.
The Purple Leash Project is working to change that.

the care and training of more service dogs for veterans with PTSD.

The Dog Chow Service Dog Salute Program

Service dogs are proving to help military veterans suffering from PTSD and other post-combat challenges in ways that no other therapy can.

Unfortunately due to resource, cost, and awareness constraints, less than 1% of those in need are able to obtain a service dog each year. Dog Chow is on a mission to change that.

For the past three years, our Service Dog Salute program has been focused on supporting the care and training of more service dogs for America’s military veterans — so that every hero in need can find a canine hero of their own.

“I have always known that dogs have the ability to impact lives, but understanding the impact service dogs have on veterans truly blew me away,” said Bobby Bones. “I am a proud supporter of the men and women who have risked their lives for our country and am honored to be a part of Dog Chow’s program to support the care and training of more life-saving service dogs for these brave veterans.”

donations to date $735,000

Did you know that it costs over $20,000 on average to train and care for one service dog for a deserving military veteran?

But with the help of consumers like you, The Dog Chow Service Dog Salute program has been able to donate over seven hundred thousand dollars to support the care and training of more veteran service dogs.
