This holiday Purr’n Pooch Pet Resorts at both locations in Wall and Tinton Falls are collecting donations for U.S. Military Working Dog Teams who have been deployed to the Middle East. We need your help in supplying them with gifts.

The Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals will host a volunteer working day on Saturday, January 18, 2014 at 2 p.m. at 86 West Gilbert Street in Tinton Falls, NJ. The general public and Foundation supporters are invited to write letters to the dog handlers and prepare their care packages for shipment.

Visit the United States War Dogs Association for ways to help the organization throughout the year. Operation Military Care K-9 is one of its many wonderful projects. Also be sure to visit the organization’s US War Dog Memorial. Dedicated on June 10, 2006, the Memorial, located guarding the gateway to the New Jersey Vietnam Veterans’ Memorial in Holmdel, New Jersey, consists of a bronze statue of a kneeling Vietnam War soldier and his dog, set on a black granite base.  The memorial was designed by sculptor Bruce Lindsay. The U.S. War Dogs Memorial, while directly representing the War Dog Teams of the Vietnam War, honors all our nation’s war dogs and their handlers – past, present and future.
