A New Leash On Life, A K9s For Warriors Story Screening, University of Findlay
The University of Findlay student organization will be opening their doors to the community to put on a special screening of the film documentary "A New Leash On Life: The K9s For Warriors Story." The film has won 4 Emmy awards, 3 Telly awards and has been featured on PBS as well as Amazon prime. This event is open to everyone at the University as well as the local community. The film features local Paramedic, Louie Belluomini and his service dog Star with Hanco EMS in Findlay and Putnam County EMS in Ottawa, Ohio. Not only will you have the opportunity to meet local K9 team Louie and Star and his wife Jessica but, you will also get to meet the other two K9 teams featured in the film, Shilo and K9 Javie and Adam and K9 Molly. Their significant others will also be present. Please join us for a fun and exciting time at the University and consider making a donation in our name to the K9s For Warriors program.
Since first featuring the film last November on campus and as of June 13, 2019, we have reached our goal of $15,000 for sponsoring our FIRST service dog who we decided will be named "Findlay" due to all the support we have received from the University and local community we are now increasing our goal to $30,000 to sponsor a SECOND service dog which we plan on naming "Hancock! Thank you! Together we can make a difference!
Due to the support of the community we have had the ability to save the life of a dog and Veteran. 22 Veterans a day commit suicide and by sponsoring a dog we are rescuing him or her from a shelter. 90% of the dogs are rescue dogs, so either way you look at it we are saving two lives as a community. It is only fitting being as patriotic as our City is, being Flag City USA, that we show support to our Veterans of this country and the K9's that are willing to support them!
We hope you enjoy the film and we are honored to have you join in this experience with us.
