Pilots N Paws, Subaru and Friends Honor Military Working Dogs for the First Time in History!~
November 11, 2012 was a day to be remembered and chronicled as a unique day in the history of Military Working Dogs. Our sincere thanks to the multitude of people and businesses who came together to assist us with honoring our Military Working Dogs for the very first time in history during the 2012 NYC Veterans Day Parade. Your support made it possible for us to recognize our veterans of the past, both two legged and those with paws, along with our current Military working dogs and their handlers.
Subaru of America partnered with Pilots N Paws for this event and as always, we could not be more proud to stand beside you. Your support is changing lives. The Pilot Mall was an important partner with Pilots N Paws as well, providing the miniature planes for this incredible float.
Communities come together when a common desire to honor our veterans is proposed. This display of gracious support was shown by many people and companies coming together to donate their time and resources Our sincere thanks to:
