In memory of Rebecca and Lumpy who have passed.

Rebecca was a Specialist Patriot Missile Crew Member Maintainer for the Army.

She has been presented with Lumpy, a Rat that we adopted from Paw Patrol.

In memory of “Sadie”

Kenneth was a Sergeant/Tank Commander 19K20 on the MIAI Abrams tank for the Army.

He was presented with Sadie, a Border Collie Mix.

Meet Jane and Tony!

They were presented with Gigi, a Pit Bull Mix.

Gigi was adopted by Jane and Tony. Tony is a Veteran that served in the Army 3 years. He was part of the first troops into Bosnia.  Tony and Jane indicated that the former K9 Marine Handler said she is one of the Best dogs she has ever trained and seen.  Gigi has added a huge amount of love, companionship and loyalty to both of our lives.  We love her!

Rest in Peace Dear Friend

With heavy hearts we had to say goodbye to one of our veterans, Jack Shelton, who unfortunately lost his battle with ALS.

His service dog, Izzy, will continue on as an emotional support animal, supporting not only Jack’s wife, Cindy, but also patients in hospitals and nursing homes.

Sophie’s Companions for Veterans/For the Love of Animals Janet Carpenter named a Dragon’s Community All Star!
