Exciting Times

There has been a lot happening at Carolina Canines and it has sometimes been a challenge to keep up.  Programs are growing, services are in demand.  We have brought several folks on board to help with the increasing program demands both in Wilmington, NC and Charleston, SC.

This week is exciting.  On Monday, the Toyota our supporters helped us to win in the Toyota 100 Cars for Good Program will be delivered.  The delivery is at 4:30 pm at Toyota of Wilmington.  Join us if you can to celebrate this great moment for our organization and the great work Toyota is doing.  On Tuesday, a film crew will be in Wilmington from Toyota.  Carolina Canines was selected as 1 of 3 of the winning organizations to be featured in a documentary about the 100 Cars for Good Program.  Awarding winning directors and producers will be working with a few volunteers and clients to share the work of Carolina Canines with the nation.  This is an incredible opportunity and one we are most grateful for.

The Harry Barker Canines for Veterans product lined launch and a benefit was held at Urban Country in Bethesda, MD.   Watch for some exciting news from Bethesda Row this holiday season.

If you have keep up with the local newspaper, Star News, you would have read about one of our foster families who is a UNCW student raising a service dog for us.  The article, UNCW student trains dogs for Canines for Service by Cece Nunn   demonstrated the dedication and work it takes to juggle a busy college curriculum while volunteering in the community.  

The schedule just keeps getting busier.  On Friday a benefit luncheon will be held at Carrabba's Italian Grill thanks to the proprietor and our supported Jonathan O'Donnell.  There are still a few seats available so call us at 910-362-8181 if you would like to join us to hear about the people we have served.  On Sunday, November 20th we'll be in Charleston, SC for a fundraiser sponsored by Charleston Referral Exchange, Pooches for Patriots.

Team training for our 50th placement begins just after Thanksgiving and will celebrate our 15th year anniversary.   None of this would be possible without YOU!  And, we thank you.
