A New Leash On Life, A K9s For Warriors Story Screening, University of Findlay. This year's event will be on Veterans Day, November 11, 2019
The University of Findlay Student Activities Board and Wellness Program will be hosting a special screening of the film documentary "A New Leash On Life: The K9s For Warriors Story." This FREE EVENT is to assist them in their current fund raising efforts.
The film has won 4 Emmy awards, 3 Telly awards and has been featured on PBS, several media stations nationwide, worldwide as well on Amazon Prime. The film features local Paramedic, Louie Belluomini and his service dog Star with Hanco EMS in Findlay and Putnam County EMS in Ottawa, Ohio.
Attendees will have the opportunity to meet local K9 team Louie and Star, Shilo and K9 Javie and Adam and K9 Molly. All three teams are featured in the film. Their significant others will be present and will participate in a moderated talk back.
Everyone is invited to join us for a FREE fun and exciting time at the University. We invite you to make a donation in our name to the K9s For Warriors program.
Since first featuring the film last November, 2018, on campus, and as of June 13, 2019, we have reached our goal of $15,000 for sponsoring our FIRST service dog! Students decided to name the dog "Findlay" due to all the support received from the local community. The goal was increased to $30,000! The additional 15,000.00 will unite a SECOND service dog with a U.S. Veteran! Once the funds are raised, Student Activities Board plan on naming the second service dog "Hancock” in celebration of the county’s support and efforts to make this goal a reality! Together we are making a "pawsitive" difference!
Thank you to the community supporters who have donated to date. Your generosity has enabled us to save the life of a dog and U.S. Veteran!
22 Veterans a day commit suicide. 90% of the dogs trained at K9’s for Warriors are rescue dogs. By sponsoring a dog, investors are rescuing a dog and supporting a U.S. Veteran. It is fitting Flag City USA and Hancock County show support to our U.S. Veterans of this country and the K9's that are willing to be trained to serve and support them!
