Pets for Vets "Putt for the Paw" Golf Tournament

WOOF!!!! Do you like to play golf? Do you love dogs?  And, how about helping veterans who could use a furry friend?  Pets for Vets is hosting their  "First Annual “Putt for the Paw” Golf Tournament to benefit Pets For Vets Washington DC Area Chapter!

Golf enthusiasts and dog lovers will join forces to benefit the Pets For Vets Washington DC Area Chapter, and military veterans in need of their services. Pets for Vets is dedicated to training shelter animals to be companion pets for veterans in need of a furry friend to brighten the day or lend a helping paw. This year’s tournament will raise funds to pair more friends in need!

Barkingly pawsome, the event will be held on Friday, April 25, 2014, day-of registration begins at 7:30 a.m., shotgun is at 9:00 a.m., at the Medal of Honor Golf Course, Quantico, VA.  You can play for $80.00 which includes a continental breakfast, professional scoring, a games and awards luncheon, all greens fees, cart fees and range balls!

And even more pawfect are the prizes which will be awarded in multiple categories!  A few of the prizes include, a weekend night stay at the Hotel Palomar, a weekend night at the Lorien Hotel Old Town Alexandria, complimentary greens fees at The Gauntlet golf course and several rounds of golf at the Hickory and Augustine Golf Clubs are just the tip of the tee!

This sounds like a great way to support a pawsome organization doing great things with dogs and vets-  Pets for Vets works hard to find a perfect match. Trainers visit with veterans in their homes to learn about their needs and lifestyles, and specific animals are chosen from rescue facilities based on those individual needs. All dogs are trained to the Canine Good Citizen level prior to joining their veterans at home, and Pets for Vets is a continued resource for veterans after they have been paired with their pets!

The Pentagon Federal Credit Union, the Defense Credit Union Council, the Knisely Family, Vanguard Advisors and others are official sponsors for the cause.
