Support Veterans and Prevent Shelter Dog Euthanization with Nordic Naturals

Paws For Vets

If you want to help support an amazing program this fall, all you have to do is buy your omega-3 supplements from Nordic Naturals. Through the end of the year, Nordic Natural is supporting the nonprofit Paws for Veterans (watch a video about the program), which pairs combat-wounded military veterans suffering from neurological and physical disabilities with task-trained medical service dogs, saved from shelters where they would otherwise have faced euthanasia.

This program is saving lives: 22 veteran suicides are reported daily and 1.2 million dogs are euthanized every year in the U.S. With every purchase of a single Nordic Naturals featured product (this includes all sizes of Baby’s DHA, Children’s DHA, Complete Omega, Nordic Berries, Omega-3, Ultimate Omega, Pet Cod Liver Oil and Omega-3 Pet), Nordic will donate a one-year supply of omega-3s to a veteran and service dog in the Paws for Veterans program. Nordic Naturals plans to donate a total of $30,000 to Paws for Veterans, to help fund a new training facility.

The dogs help remind veterans to take medications, physically interrupt panic attacks, help retrieve medication, phone, water or other family members, help owners wake from nightmares and more. Nordic Naturals offers a superior product, made from 100 percent wild-caught, sustainably managed fisheries. Now buying your supplements from them means helping veterans and shelter dogs, too.

I am an animal activist associated with http://adidarwinian.com/ and I think euthanasia for animals is not a good option until they are terminally ill and suffering a lot of intolerable pain. If there are available means to treat them and make their lives reasonably livable, then these should be fully tried before thinking about euthanasia.
