Who: Save-A-Pet Animal Rescue and Adoption Center, Inc. and Guardians of Rescue

What: U.S. Army Veteran James Mowdy of Boone, North Carolina will receive a service dog, courtesy of Guardians of Rescue’s “Paws of War” Program and Save-A-Pet. After serving a tour in Iraq as a Radio Telephone Operator (RTO) for a long-range surveillance team, Mr. Mowdy has suffered from symptoms associated with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) for more than 10 years. He reached out to Guardians of Rescue to assist with finding a canine companion that may help ease some of his anxiety and trauma.

Mr. Mowdy had requested a Cane Corso, and after an exhaustive search for the proper fit, Guardians of Rescue and Save-A-Pet were able to locate “Grazi,” a two-year-old, female Cane Corso with the right temperament and qualities to be a perfect service companion for Mr. Mowdy.

Volunteer trainers from All Star Dog Training and Pet Peeves Dog Training of Long Island donated their time, while funds were raised via Facebook to fly Mr. Mowdy from North Carolina to Save-A-Pet for what is sure to be an emotional first meeting with Grazi.

When: Friday, August 30
