It’s available through the Estrella Publishing website or as a Yudu flipbook. Links are available below. This article is well worth the time to read. We hope you enjoy it.

Yesterday marked a milestone for eight hard working veteran/dog teams from Prescott, Phoenix and Sierra Vista. Their graduation was held in Central Phoenix in a private ceremony. Each team was given their official service dog vest and documentation to show their successful completion of the program. Our President, who conducted the graduation ceremony, expressed our pride in their accomplishments as well as a reminder that the work isn’t finished. Every team is encouraged to continue their training and stay engaged. Photos are posted on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SoldiersBestFriend
A heartfelt salute to all the U.S. veterans who have served our country so bravely.
A huge thank you to all the golfers, sponsors, volunteers and others who made the Nov. 1 golf tournament a huge success. It was a gorgeous day at the Legends at Arrowhead for the tournament. A total of 128 golfers participated this year. Our devoted volunteers were there at 5:30 in the morning to make sure the day was a success. Thank you to the sponsors for their support. Investment of both time and financial support made this year’s tournament one to remember.
Thank you Swift Charities for choosing Soldier’s Best Friend as this year’s beneficiary! Your fun run/walk at Rio Vista Park last Saturday was a huge success. Anyone who wants to see photos of the Super Hero themed event can find them on the Swift Charities Facebook page.
