DALLAS, May 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Every Memorial Day we honor and celebrate our nation's heroes and this year, CAVI on TDY wants to help the four-legged heroes. Cavi on TDY, a non-profit organization who gives grants to grass-roots military charities who support veterans, is partnering with 'Carry the Load'.
This year, at the Sunday "Carry The Load" event, Cavi, a terrier mix, will be walked by founder of CTDY Donna Brittingham. Cavi will be wearing a special vest honoring 50 fallen heroes adorned with "dog tags" honoring the name of dogs who gave the ultimate sacrifice in the name of our freedom.
Anyone can make a donation in the name of their own dog or for a fallen service dog and 100% of the proceeds will go to "Carry The Load". To sponsor one of the 50 tags just click here Donate CAVI. After the event you will get a personalized photo of Cavi wearing your tag at the Memorial Day event as a thank you for your donation.
Cavi's relationship with Carry the Load and Patriotic Pets is part of its larger mission and commitment to help military members, veterans and their pets successfully transition to their post military service lives.
"Cavi on TDY is honored to join Carry The Load in paying tribute to the men, women and pets who have given their lives in our defense, putting themselves in harm's way so that we all may enjoy our freedom," said Donna Brittingham, the President of Cavi on TDY.

Founded in 2016, the goal of the charity is to serve the military community by helping children, pets, and families both locally and globally during military transition assignments. Leading the charge is Cavi, the highest-ranking officer and furry friend. *The name stems from a military term TDY meaning "Temporary Duty". Cavi was adopted by Donna Baker Brittingham, a Dallas resident and the CEO of See Pictures, http://seepictures.biz. Donna is the daughter of a retired Air Force Captain who proudly served our country for 20 years. Growing up in a chaos filled military transitional life, Donna knows all too well the needs of the average military family.
