Saving dogs one at a time

Hey everyone,

I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Joshua Araujo a USMC vet. I know it sounds cliche to put it out there that I served, butI’d be ignorant not to do that due to the fact that while serving in the Marine Corps that is where I got this powerful idea to change lives.

Well... to change our dogs lives. Today I am here humbly asking for your help so that I may finally move forward to giving birth to my invention.

Did you know? In the USA alone 42.5 million people own dogs. 11.2 million of those loyal companions get ran over or run away each year, that’s not to include how many get turned in to the animal shelters across the country.

Today I can proudly say I’ve came up with a solution to prevent this from happening. With your help we can make this come true.

Most of you if not all are wondering “ what is it Josh, what’s the invention”. To be honest I wish I could say it but it’s not patented yet. And due to those reasons I can’t get into specifics. Just know that it’s a form of modified Leash and that I’m tryjng to create a product that will save our loyal friends lives. With that anything as little as one dollar or a share is one step closer to this goal. I thank you all for your time.

The money would be broken down as such.
1k for research ( already accomplished )
14,900 will go to patenting the idea ( next step )
29k will go to making one prototype.

For those who do not know me I’ve left a brief bio below.

I am the first American born in my family. My father and mother came from Brazil to Boynton Beach Fl where i was born. At An early age I moved to Brazil with my father, stepmother and two younger brothers. While living in Brazil I noticed I wanted more for myself. When I graduated high school I came back to USA. A year or so later I signed up to join the United States Marine Corps to become a Military Police Officer. While I was in I was blessed to be given the opportunity to be a k9 handler. At that moment I didn’t feel like I was working a day of my life. In 2017 I separated honorably from the Marine Corps with 6 years of service. My love for k9 is so strong that I couldn’t stop. I continue working with these loyal animals till this day.
