In 2007 PAALS began a program to specifically help people who have served us through military, police, or firefighter service. The Rob’s Best Friend Fund was started in memory of PAALS’ founders’ brother and his commitment to police work and passion for dogs.
The goal of the Rob’s Best Friend Fund is to provide service dogs to veterans in need without requiring them to fund raise to support the service.
Two of the service dog teams currently in team training are veterans who are being funded through Rob’s Best Friend Fund. Both teams should be part of the graduation event on December 6th at Northeast United Methodist Church.
PAALS believes that these individuals have already served us and should be repaid with our support in their time of need.
