Today is Flag Day and we're celebrating with an opportunity for you to win a one-of-a-kind, puppy-made, American flag! Your donation will help change the lives of veterans, children and adults with disabilities.
Veterans, like Marv who was matched with Service Dog Yara, have experienced more independence in their lives thanks to their Canine Companions® assistance dog. “Yara is probably the main reason I’m here today,” says Marv. Yara helps Marv by turning on and off lights, picking up dropped items and pulling Marv in his manual wheelchair. “Being a wheelchair user, I find that people tend to ignore me; they don’t even make eye contact. But with Yara by my side, all of that changes.”
Build-A-Bear Workshop® will donate $1.00 from the sale of each Promise Pets™ furry friends purchased in stores June 28 through August 8, up to $50,000, to Give a Dog a Job and support children with disabilities. Learn how your business can support Canine Companions.
