When: November 30, 2021 at ALL DAY!


The Shelter to Soldier team would like to share our genuine gratitude to you for being here, following along with our journey and supporting us along the way. We’ve been busy training our TWENTY NINE service dog trainees and reaching out to veterans organizations throughout Southern California to maximize our impact and broaden our reach. 2021 has seen our greatest impact since our inception – and that’s in thanks to all of you! This year, we have:

  • Rescued 18 homeless dogs in need of a job and greater purpose
  • Graduated 17 teams
  • Improved our training/playtime yards
  • Expanded our veteran outreach efforts throughout SoCal
  • Added 2 staff mental health days and 5 complimentary counseling sessions (anonymous, no questions asked) to our Employee Appreciation Program
  • 9 team members who are US Veterans
  • Employed 6 Military Spouses

And, more is coming!

None of this positive impact would be possible without the collective efforts, advocacy and contributions from our community. We are so thankful for each and every one of you.

We need your continued support this Giving Tuesday to help us build our momentum to continue “Saving Lives, Two at a Time.”

This year, the impact of your donation will be doubled to make change in the lives of the homeless pups and deserving veterans served by our program. Richard Pearson of Avion Law has pledged to match up to $10,000 in funds raised now through Giving Tuesday to Shelter to Soldier!GivingTuesday is a global generosity movement unleashing the power of radical generosity.
