Yes, there is a theme here…our ‘Hometown Heroes’-It’s for a great cause-Patriots and Paws.

What is Patriots and Paws?

Patriots and Paws is a volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit that collects donated home furnishings-TV’s, beds, tables, chairs, appliances, etc., from all over Southern California, brought to our warehouse, and Veterans/Active Duty/Reservists sign-up, and we can furnish their homes FREE OF CHARGE. We also place companion pets with them, FREE OF CHARGE as well, and can help turn them into service dogs through our community resources. Hence, Patriots and Paws…here is an older video about the inspiration on our organization-

Last year we helped over 1000 Veterans and their families.
