It’s Good to Give… Tis the Season After All! I thought I would share a program called Bark it Furward with you. It was created to raise awareness and funds for a non-profit organization that trains and provides service dogs for children and adults with physical disabilities called Canine Assistants. For nearly 20 years, Canine Assistants has provided 1,000 service dogs to people across the country, giving them the chance to have more independent lifestyles and Milk-Bone® has been a charitable partner to Canine Assistants since 1997. Every time you buy Milk-Bone® dog snacks, a portion of the proceeds goes to help the Canine Assistants® organization!
Without the help of any government funding, Canine Assistants relies on the generosity and private donations made by philanthropic partners to help pay for the training of these special needs dogs. This service is so needed that there are actually over 2000 people on the waiting list! Bark It Furward was created by Milk-Bone® brand to educate others about the inspiring work being conducted by Canine Assistants. By joining the Bark It Furward movement, you can help raise awareness and much needed funds to provide assistance dogs for people with disabilities.
So how can you help?
