In honor of September’s National Service Dog Month, Wendy Diamond, founder of AnimalFair.com honored the K9s For Warriors organization Saturday (Sept. 7) at the Omni Hotel in Chicago with a breakfast and fundraiser.
AnimalFair.com’s 10-city Bark Business Tour is raising funds and awareness for the K9s For Warriors program, designed to pair ten returning U.S. Veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, with 10 rescued Service Dogs. The Bark Business Tour will stop in 10 cities, kicking off in Chicago and will continue until at least $100,000 is raised.
Saturday’s event was attended by Chicago Fire castmembers Taylor Kinney (without girlfriend Lady Gaga, who briefly in town Saturday), Joe Minoso and David Eigenberg, as well as Sirens castmembers Kevin Daniels and Jessica McNamee.
At the event, guests were gifted with bags of HALO pet treats.
