Semper Fido for Sergeant Daniel Riley!

Semper Fido is a fantastic non-profit program that unites soldiers suffering from PTSD with shelter dogs looking for a forever home.  The two, who need each other equally, are able to form a unique, healing bond with the help of a rigorous 6-9 month training program.

Daniel is an amazing, courageous person with the biggest heart you could imagine, who served 4 years in the U.S. Marines, including 2 tours in Iraq.  Over the past few years, Danny has battled with PTSD.  Our lovable pit bull, Sam, had been a great companion through all of this.  Unfortunately, we lost Sam recently after a battle with cancer, and this loss has been devastating.  

In order for Semper Fido to provide these invaluable services, the cost per team totals $10,000.  We have decided to take it upon ourselves to raise the funds to help Danny create this life-changing relationship.  

Please help us find Daniel's new best friend!  Any money that is raised past our goal will go toward helping other soldiers find their best friends! 

Thank you!
-Danny's loving family
