The Shelter Dogs for Veterans (SDFV) Event in Ellijay raised roughly $2,300 over the weekend in support of their organization in conjunction with local volunteers.
The cookout, auction and bike ride were all hosted by Legion Post 82, the Legion Riders and local members who helped. Shelter Dogs For Veterans (Formally Paws Be Good) saves dogs from kill shelters and trains them to be service dogs for our military veterans with (PTSD) Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder & (TBI) Traumatic Brain Injury.
With over 75 people attending the event despite the weather threats, the 15 SDFV Volunteers were able to bid off several items including their largest bid of $100 for a dog bed package containing two beds, two bowls, and treats as well as raffling off an American Flag Quilt which was made locally and donated to support the function. The raffle winner for the flag is set to be drawn at the upcoming Legion 4th of July Celebration.
