Ladies Auxiliary VFW Post 10167 Is Sponsoring A Benefit For A Service Dog For A Disabled Little Girl

Sometimes we just think of a dog as a dog, but there are some dogs that will help change a person’s life. A little girl named Jennifer Petersen is in need of a trained service dog that just might save her life one day. Little Jennifer suffers with cerebral palsy and has seizures from having epilepsy so one day her mother was wondering what they were going to do the next time Jennifer had a seizure and they weren’t around. That’s when the idea of a dog came in and with the kind help from the Ladies Auxiliary VFW Post 10167 her dreams will come true.

Little Jennifer can use all they help they can get to help pay for her new friend to be that will share her journey though live and help her live one day at a time.
