American Humane Fundraiser Benefits Military Working Dogs and Service Members

American Humane hosted a philanthropic cocktail event at the International Polo Club Palm Beach (IPC) to honor military working dogs and service members. Military dogs who serve alongside American troops help keep service members safe by identifying IEDs and other dangers, but the working dogs retired overseas are often unable to be brought back home to their former handlers. Fundraiser proceeds will assist in bringing military working dogs (MWDs) back home to be reunited with their handlers. Other funds raised will provide free, specialty and preventative medical care for retired MWDs.

“American Humane is thrilled to have assembled such an exceptional Wellington audience in support of our efforts to reunite American’s brave military K-9s with their beloved handlers,” says Dr. Robin Ganzert, American Humane’s president and CEO. “After serving our country, many brave Military Working Dogs are tragically left alone overseas, and military handlers often face the heartbreaking reality of parting ways with their K-9 counterparts after forming an incredible bond through service on the battlefield.” 

During the event, guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails poolside at the venue while listening to contemporary rhythms of world-renowned musician Victor Espinola and his Paraguayan electric harp. A silent auction featured special prizes, including a scenic helicopter tour of Palm Beach and the Florida Coast and a two-night stay at Caerula Mar Club, Bahamas, with private jet transportation by Verijet.
