Public education is an important part of the mission of the Peak Military Care Network. We work to provide the military and veteran community, and citizens throughout the region, with information about the challenges facing those who have served our nation, as well as the ways in which we can all offer support.
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.
