Patriot PAWS at the Rose Bowl Parade
On January 1, 2011, the “Saving America’s Mustangs” featured disabled veterans and their service dogs, trained by Patriot PAWS, on their float during the Rose Bowl Parade. Through her Foundation, businesswoman and philanthropist Madeleine Pickens unites citizens from all walks of life to create a permanent home to save these national treasures. Patriot PAWS would like to extend a very special thank you to Mr. and Mrs. T. Boone Pickens for their invitation to participate with the float in the Tournament of Roses Parade.
Petco Foundation Donates Van to Patriot PAWS
The beautiful red, white and blue van was donated to Patriot PAWS by the Petco Foundation. It is fully handicapped accessible for transporting disabled veterans and also comes equipped with removable kennels for transporting dogs to demonstrations, public functions and to their training at the prison in Gatesville, Tx. It has enabled us to expand our services in many ways.
