Donation #3: Bailing Out Benji (https://bailingoutbenji.com/): This amazing organization is dedicated to ending the abusive breeding practices of puppy mills. It's shocking to know how prevalent this abuse is and the horrible conditions these beautiful creatures are kept in. It's nearly impossible for me to even read about the stories, let alone think about the huge number of dogs that are living their lives this way.
Donation #2: Yesterday I sold my 200th Night Light....so today I made my newest $100 donation. I read the most amazing story about Odin, a hero dog who survived the wildfires when his loving family had to make a horribly heartbreaking decision and left him to care for their baby goats and other animals.....not only did he survive, although burnt, weak and hurting, but he protected and saved the baby goats and some deer that had sought him out for protection. Every day I am reminded what amazing creatures dogs are. The selfless and loving things they do for us humans is something to celebrate and appreciate.

Donation #1: I first read about Semper K9 Assistance Dogs in People Magazine and thought it would be the perfect organization for our first donation. We're very proud that we've sold enough night lights to fulfill our promise to give $1 from each night light to animal welfare organizations. A little bit about Kemper K9 Assistance Dogs:
With a lifelong love of animals instilled by parents who bred Labradors and golden retrievers, Chris Baity discovered his professional calling as a dog trainer while interacting with military dogs on a high school Marine ROTC trip. He went on to serve eight years as a Marine — including three tours of duty in Iraq — teaching combat dogs to detect and locate weapons and explosives. After retiring from the service in 2009, and in his post-military work as contract trainer back home in Woodbridge, Virginia, he realized he could create a new life for shelter dogs by tapping into the same learning skills that made dogs so effective in the field. In 2014, he and his wife, Amanda, 35, launched Semper K9 Assistance Dogs, which provides free, trained rescue animals to be the equivalent of battle buddies for veterans suffering from physical or mental disabilities.
You can read more about this organization at www.semperk9.org and in the People Magazine article that inspired me at http://people.com/human-interest/former-marine-trains-abandoned-shelter-animals-help-veterans.
We hope to be fortunate enough to donate to many more organizations in the future.
