LA MESA DONATIONS
Soldier is a CA 501c3 nonprofit organization that rescues dogs from an
otherwise uncertain future in local shelters and trains them to become
psychiatric service dogs for post-9/11 combat veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic
Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or other injuries
associated with traumatic service experiences. Every day, 22 US veterans and 1
active duty service member are lost to suicide. That’s an average of one life
lost every 63 minutes. The suicide rate among the nation’s military personnel
has spiked this year, eclipsing the number of troops dying in battle and on
pace to set a record annual high since the start of the wars in Iraq and
Afghanistan more than a decade ago. PTSD is a major problem for our men and
women in uniform, and its effects last far and beyond the battlefield.
Our main fund drive starts at the La Mesa
club on November 9th, two days before Veteran’s day, when we will be
selling “dog body parts”, at different prices, from the heart to a small tooth.
Don’t be concerned as the parts are on paper only. Please contact me if you are
interested in helping one of our veterans being paired with a dog.

a video. Please contact Rob if you are interested in helping.
