You might have seen this add not so long ago...
PAWS AND STRIPES is a non profit organization matching wounded US Military Veterans suffering from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and Traumatic Brain Injury with Service Dogs.
All Service Dogs are obtained FROM SHELTERS and trained at no cost to the Vet.
As such they are to be commended as many soldiers (here and abroad) are coming home only to experience time and time again the horrors of war. Their sacrifice should not be forgotten.
FREEDOM IS NOT CHEAP!!
My family and I were absolutely shocked to hear therefore of the abuse of their founder Jim Stanek and his service dog SARGE by UNITED AIRLINES employees, not once but twice!
I believe any animal lover would be outraged at Sarge's treatment but to have also a three combat tours Veteran being treated so should not go unnoticed!
Please take a moment to read the following:
Ex-RAF hubby says: SHAME ON YOU UNITED AIRLINES!
As a retired AFES for the ARC and a SOLDIER's ANGEL I absolutely refuse to fly with an airlines which treats our heroes this way!
Take notice World, such treatment is NOT ACCEPTABLE!!
From MacIntosh the Corgi to Sarge: WOOF!! Hang in there Girl!!
