The Griffin Gives Foundation announced their new program “Paws Healing Heroes” on Veteran’s Day 2016 in Glassboro, NJ.
The Paws Healing Heroes Program was established through The Griffin Gives Foundation by Glassboro native Mark Eberle, an Army Veteran who suffers from the affects of war as well. Mark’s mission is to raise money, through community events, in order to provide service dogs, primarily those in shelters, to Veterans in need. “My hope is to rescue dogs that need forever homes and have them determined eligible to enter a training program – enabling them to be certified to work with Veterans depending on the needs they have. Knowing that I am able to help and give back to fellow Veterans helps me as much as the dog and the Veteran in need” said Eberle. “In this case, Salfid Rescue needed to find a home for Dixie and with the assistance of the Star Dog Academy in Pitman, NJ the training quickly began and has been on-going for several months. I am looking forward to seeing Dixie and Nick help one another”.
The ceremony was in conjunction the diner providing free meals to Veterans on Veteran’s Day as a way of saying “Thank you for your Service”, an additional attribute started by Eberle.
