Dogs play an important role in helping Veterans* cope with reintegration. Unfortunately, though, resources are not widely available to help provide veterinary care for their companions. In fact, many Veterans experiencing hardships choose between resources for themselves and their companion animals, potentially compromising their own welfare.
On Armed Forces Day, May 20 2017 - the “Ainsley Price Day of Service for Veterans” - Veterans won’t have to choose: veterinary students from the Colorado State University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences will provide exams and services to canine companions under the guidance of licensed veterinarians; case coordinators from Denver Public Health will conduct “Heart Health Screenings” for Veterans; and a representative from an in-home dog training company will offer dog behavior tips. Best of all, all services will be free in appreciation of Armed Forces Veterans’ service.
If you too would like to help please follow the La Alma-Lincoln Park Neighborhood Association and donate to VOA’s “Peer Program.” “Peer Program” funds will be used for counseling and related services. Checks should be made payable to Volunteers of America Colorado with “Peer Program” in the memo line. You can also help by bringing a can(s) of food for the VOA’s Food Bank.
*Veterans: Please bring proof of service for validation prior to receiving services.
