Working in conjunction with Vermont Blue Star Mothers and War Veterans Assistance Group are happy to announce that six comfort dogs have been placed with Vermont veterans! These dogs provide a release and acceptance for those who need a companion and help to get through a tough time in their life such as PTSD sufferers. All of these dogs are rescued animals that are trained and readied by professional personnel and people who care…for the veterans and they go to veterans homes as soon as they are certified “ready” by the pros. This program has been hugely successful and is the first of it’s kind based on surrounding circumstances! What a tribute to the Blue Star Mothers and the people they help serve and WVAG is honored to be a part of it! Beetle Bailey, Mazie, Scooter, Rusty and Diego are hard at work in the field and Chopper, Jigsaw, Grinch, Dexter, Magnolia, Shadow and Harley are preparing to go to work providing relief to our veterans. When these dogs are placed into a home, they come with leash, crate, food, vetted, collars ad harnesses. Great job everyone and continued success!
On 7 November, 2015, a Calcutta was held in Enosburg Falls at the American Legion Hall by War Veterans Assistance Group. This event was just another example of soliciting participation from Northern Vermont Residents in order to raise money in support of Vermont’s Veterans that need some relief from hardship for themselves or members of their family. There was a real sense of patriotism in the building and people in attendance displayed a huge amount of support for these veterans and for War Veterans Assistance Group and what they do on behalf of Vermont’s own! The money raised here tonight will come in handy during the holidays which historically has been a tough time for many veterans and their families. A light hearted, generous and fun loving crowd brought the community closer together albeit for just one night but this display of how communities can come together in support of their soldiers was a true “spirit of Vermont” moment for everyone in attendance! Thank you to everyone that made this a memorable evening and a better holiday season for those veterans who need it and supported us when we needed their help in defense of our great country. Happy holidays everyone!
