The Givers That Help Our Dogs

Two High School students named Jamil Miller and Kevin Ruiz from Camden, NJ have started a nonprofit business to help feed pets that are in need.
Their food bank is called Chow Hound House located in Camden, NJ that helps feed and fulfill medical needs for the needy.

Kevin Ruiz said: I remember one lady asking us if all of this is free. "I can't believe you guys are doing this. After the lady told me that, it was all worth it. She was astonished. The look on her face was as if she won a million dollars.

What a Great group of kids that have worked together to try and make life a little better in their community by helping the needy feed their pets.

Then you have a group called Save-A-Vet that held its second rally with over a thousand bikers that helped raise money to build a place where disabled service dogs will have a place to go and be taken care of.

We always read articles about animal shelters but we never read anything about the dogs that who were wounded while working with our soldiers. This rally was supported by the Harley Davidson dealerships in Illinois along with a lot of other participants that offer their services to help make this rally come true.

So first we say Thanks to all the Vets for their sacrifice and to all the dogs that put their life on the line. And a Big Thanks for all that helped our buddies out on their new future home.
