Donations to “Old Dawgs and Pups

As veterans of the Vietnam War, we know from experience that Uncle Sam does not always provide the right gear when and where it’s needed. Since late 2005, Old Dawgs and Pups has been buying and shipping hoses and hose reels, kennel cleaning supplies and tools, portable water bowls and food bowls, cool-vests and booties and “doggles” for the dogs, grooming tools, K-9 diet supplements, training aids, even a one-time shipment of made-in-USA soft toilet paper for our first group of handlers in Kyrgyzstan.

Our major corporate sponsor has been the Leatherman Tool Group of Portland, Ore., which has donated thousands of dollars worth of tools, knives and flashlights, and made it possible for us to purchase additional gear at discounted prices.

To date, through the generous donations of individuals, Leatherman, and a company called Helping Udders we’ve shipped more than 1,000 items of equipment to more than 200 dog teams all over the world. The value of this gear as of November, 2009 totals over $42,000. One hundred percent of all donated funds have gone to equipment purchases and shipping costs.

Old Dawgs and Pups is operated by KennelMaster Bill Cummings, who volunteers his time and efforts to the ODAP project. Like Bill, all the Old Dawg's staff are volunteers and were K-9 Military Working Dogs handlers during their service.
