Hospitalized Veteran gets a helping hand from two Colorado Springs businesses
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — A Colorado Springs family got a little help from the community.
A Veteran, who was suddenly hospitalized could no longer care for his 15-year-old dog, Blue who was at risk of being euthanized.
To help out, the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs reached out to the Peak Military Care Network, who then contacted Camp Bow Wow, a local day care and boarding facility for dogs.
Camp Bow Wow was able to house Blue for three and a half months, before finding him a new home with another Veteran.
If that wasn’t enough, another local and Veteran-owned business stepped up and made much-needed repairs on the Veteran’s car, while he was hospitalized.
