)-- “Barks & Brews,” an event for Armed Forces Day will be held May 19th from 11am – 3pm at 1733 E. President Street in Savannah. This is a fundraising event supporting “Companions For Heroes.”
Well behaved socialized dogs are welcome at this event.

The C4H program was founded in 2009 and has a mission of pairing shelter and rescued animals with the 1% of our nation that volunteer to be public servants who place themselves in harm’s way, who are challenged with PTSD, and dealing with the experiences they have had protecting our way of life. Throughout C4H’s years the program has aided over 7,000 of America’s Bravest and found caring homes for numerous shelter animals. C4H is committed to providing a shelter or rescue animal [companion] to the active duty service member, military veteran, law enforcement officer, first responder and their family member that do not have a companion in their life.
A veteran talking about the affect a C4H companion has had on his life:
“Even on the worst days when [we] are tired and burnt he can have us laughing in seconds, and hearing my wife laugh is some of the best medicine in the world. He makes me forget the pain and everything while we play and when it is nap time he hops right on the bed and takes a nap also. I can tell you for a fact that [our companion] will make me want to keep going again...I was getting to the point of giving up and now...life feels so much better. So again thank you, thank you, thank you. You all (C4H) provide a great service to the vets and everywhere I go I let them know about Companion for Heroes and the fine service they do.”
This important fundraiser is being presented in honor of our armed forces and in support of the “Companions for Heroes” (C4H) program. Funds raised will go directly to C4H and is presented in partnership with Georgia Land & Cattle and Infield Media & Promotions.
