“We have experienced significant losses in critical funding due to the cancellation of fundraising events and decreased staff/volunteer capacity amidst COVID-19 concerns. Participation in Arizona Gives Day is critical in allowing us to continue providing services to our veteran/dog teams that would not otherwise be possible. We are proud to participate in this statewide campaign to raise awareness and support for the veterans we serve and their canine training partners.” said Katie Ares, Interim Executive Director.
