<p>(<a href=NewsUSA) – Whom do we consider heroes? The men and women who serve our country definitely come to mind. These heroes now have their own heroes -; Assistance Dogs specially trained to help those who have been disabled during their tour of duty.

With the motto “Return the Love,” an online pet boutique called TailsandCompany.com is honoring our service men and women with disabilities. The site is offering to provide Assistance Dogs to those in need through America’s VetDogs. It costs over $50,000 to train an Assistance Dog, and TailsandCompany.com wants to challenge Americans to help raise as much as possible.

America’s VetDogs, a new program from the Guide Dog Foundation for the Blind, Inc., provides guide, service and therapy dogs to disabled veterans throughout the country. The organization trains and supplies guide dogs for the visually impaired veteran and service dogs for those who have disabilities other than blindness. America’s VetDogs also offer training on Trekker, an orientation aid that uses GPS technology and digital maps to help blind and visually impaired people navigate unfamiliar territory.

“These dogs have a natural, uncanny way of reducing stress,” says Staff Sergeant Jack Greene of the dogs. “It’s kind of magical.”

Now, by buying fun pet products for their cat or dog at www.tailsandcompany.com, people can donate to America’s VetDogs. TailsandCompany.com is an online shop for pets that features upscale accessories designed to keep pets -; and their owners -; happy and healthy.

The Web site offers special camouflage pet products designed especially for America’s VetDogs. The collection includes beds, mats, bandanas, lounge wear for humans and more -; not to mention the most comprehensive collection of premium pet products assembled on one site. For football fans, collegiate-themed collars and leashes bring a whole new meaning to “tail gates.” For the person with an indoor-outdoor cat or a wandering Westie, a GPS collar and tracker might relieve anxiety caused by a pet running away from home.

Guide Dog organizations always need volunteers. Guide Dog and Therapy Dog organizations appreciate donations, too. Pet lovers can contribute directly to their favorite organizations through a variety of ways including planned giving, stock transfers, matching gifts from corporations, and gifts in honor of a loved one.
