Booties For Military K9’s


Dear Long island Pet Lover:

I belong to The American Legion Auxiliary on both the Unit and County levels. We always help our Veterans, our Military and of course, our community. However now I find myself writing to you on behalf of “OUR” military K9’s. There is an extreme need for these dogs (“Officers”) who serve with our troops everyday. Many people don’t realize that the heat of the Afghanistan sands are extremely intense, with temperatures ranging from 117 degrees and above. This in itself, burns and cracks these poor dogs paws. As a result of this, our troops pick them up and carry them upon their shoulders. Leaving both the Soldier and his/her partner in harms way. I am asking if you, along with the publics help can fulfill my cause of “ Booties for Military K9’s”. The Booties are made by Ruffwear and are very high quality, which these K9’s need and deserve. Please help them so they can continue to help our troops.

Thank you.
