Golden PAWS Assistance Dogs launches Wall of Honor campaign

The Naples Chapter of Sons of American Revolution, Florida Society, presented a check in the amount of $1000 to honor their Patriot Ancestors on the Wall of Honor

Golden PAWS Assistance Dogs has officially launched their Wall of Honor campaign to the public and was presented an official campaign check by the Naples Chapter of Sons of American Revolution (SAR), Florida Society. SAR members presented a check to honor their Patriot Ancestors on February 27 at The Ken & Susan Meyer Center for Golden PAWS Assistance Dogs in Naples.

This unique project is inspired by and is in recognition of military Veterans, law enforcement officers, and first responders who have served our great nation with honor, courage, and distinction. The patriotic Wall of Honor will be prominently and permanently displayed in the Golden PAWS Training Arena. It will stand as a testament to GoldenPAWS’ mission while leaving the legacy of the honoree.

“I am thrilled to announce the launch of our Wall of Honor campaign, a heartfelt tribute to the brave individuals who have selflessly served our country,” said Jeannie Bates, Founder and CEO of Golden PAWS Assistance Dogs. “At Golden PAWS, we believe in honoring and preserving the legacies of our servicemen and women, and the Wall of Honor serves as a testament to their sacrifices and unwavering dedication.”

Sponsorship levels range from $1,000 to $50,000. All funds received beyond the cost of the wall will go directly to the Heroes Fund to maximize Golden PAWS’ ability to serve those heroes within our service dog family of recipients. Bates explains that The Heroes Fund is a critical need program that supports recipients and their dogs, delivering peace of mind to meet the multi-level demands for complex nutritional support and the exceptional veterinary needs of their canine partners. The fund also assists in meeting emergent, life-altering needs for our recipients and their family.

Besides training assistance dogs, Golden PAWS also has several community programs and places a strong emphasis on giving back. The list of community partners continues to grow and includes Vi at Bentley Village, David Lawrence Center, New Beginnings School of Naples, Collier County Libraries and Schools, Naples Police Department, Collier County Sheriff Department, and The Glenview and The Marbella at Pelican Bay. A team of volunteers along with assistance dogs in training visit many of these community partners on a regular basis.

Golden PAWS Assistance Dogs is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes independence for combat wounded veterans, first responders and children with life-changing disabilities through partnerships with skilled assistance dogs.
