All summer, we’ve been promoting our campaign to get Bretagne, a 9/11 search dog, honored at the Hero Dog Awards.
After advancing to the semifinals, she’s emerged as the winner of the Search and Rescue category, and is now in the finals for overall Hero Dog!
The last round of voting extends from now until 12:00pm on September 15th. We need all the help we can get, so be sure to vote every day. Since her handler chose the WDC as her charity partner, we’ll receive a $5,000 donation in Bretagne’s honor if she wins.
Currently we have 18 dogs at the center, and a litter of 9 puppies getting ready to join our Puppy Foundation Program this fall. The training and care of each dog is very expensive—about $35,000 per year per dog—so a donation from Bretagne would greatly benefit our program. So get ready and get voting!
