American Humane Raises Funds To Support Six More Service Dog Teams Thanks To The Generous Support Of Our Palm Beach Human Heroes

It was an evening of altruism for almost 200 of Palm Beach’s well-heeled set who came in droves to celebrate man’s best friend at American Humane’s fifth annual Pups4Patriots Dinner Dance on February 26, 2023. 

“Many veterans struggle with post-traumatic stress or traumatic brain injuries,” said American Humane’s CEO and president, Dr. Robin Ganzert. “For some, medications and therapists are simply not enough to help restore a sense of normalcy. There is no pill or therapy session that can put a smile on a vet’s face like a wagging tail. We want every veteran to know that they do not need to face this battle alone. Man’s best friend can help.” To date, the program has delivered nearly 270 healing leashes into the hands of U.S. military veterans – at no cost to them – thanks to the generous support of donors. 

With philanthropist and veteran’s advocate Lois Pope serving as the Inspirational Chair of the event, and a speaker line-up that included retired Brigadier General Lorry Sutton and television host Montel Williams, attendees gave generously to support Pups4Patriots. The dinner raised enough money to partner six new service dogs to American veterans.
