Continues Petre, "It is almost like an arranged marriage, a unique and compelling bond between our dog and the Veteran when they train together and later, when they live together. We pair our dogs with service men and women, who also go through a thorough screening process including honorable discharge status, disability medical diagnosis and the demonstrated ability to take care of the dog. Once deployed, we re-evaluate Stiggy's Dogs every year thereafter."
"My hope is to make a positive impact in the community by recognizing all Heroes," says Christina Bournias, Author of !woof Nicodemus™ and Organizer of the 'Heroes Rock' event. "$25 Eventbrite tickets are available at www.tinyurl.com/09-17-16-Save-The-Date. We encourage attendees to come enjoy the music and artwork for a good cause. And, of course, service dogs are welcome." The day will include live entertainment at 1, 3, and 5 p.m. by The Jimmy Jack Band (www.jimmyjackmusic.com), a popular Cleveland, Ohio trio—featuring Jimmy Jack, a Romeo, Michigan, hometown native; and Chicago's Artist—Shayne Taylor with Shayne Art (www.shaynart.com)—'sweet' artwork; refreshments and silent auction.
