Drive to bring a National Fire Dog Monument to the nation's capital!


American Humane Association is working to bring the first National Fire Dog Monument to the nation's capital.  The National Fire Dog Monument (NDFM) was created by Jerry Means, owner of the 2011 American Humane Associations Hero Dog Awards™ finalist, Sadie. The bronze statue was sculpted by a Denver area firefighter and serves to acknowledge the incredible, heroic work of Certified Accelerant-Detection K-9s (Arson Dogs) everywhere.
    Each year billions of dollars worth of property damage and hundreds of lives are lost to arson. Arson Dogs help fight those crimes.
    Did you know?
   -  Arson Dogs have been trained to sniff out minute traces of accelerants
   -  Arson Dogs go through extensive training to become certified
   -  Arson Dogs spend all of their time with their handlers — making them part of the family
   -  Arson dogs provide community outreach programs and educational seminars on fire prevention and safety

Support the National Fire Dog Monument, help heroic arson dogs like Sadie and help protect kids and animals everywhere.  To Donate: https://secure2.convio.net/aha/site/Donation2?df_id=3381&3381.donation=form1&JServSessionIdr004=pfgiyjofs1.app226a

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
