·         Dogs Helping Heroes is hosting the second annual dog walk April 6. 2019 at the Jeffersonville Riverstage. The main goal of this event is to raise money and awareness for veterans suffering PTSD who cannot function in day to day life and need a service dog. Service dogs require extensive training, and cost about 20,000-30,000. However, through Dogs Helping Heroes, they reduce that cost to 5,000. Our goal this year is to raise enough money to give two dogs to two veterans in need. We are asking for your help. The cost to walk is $15 and all proceeds go to the dogs!
