America's VetDogs Run & Dog Walk (Independence)

Smithtown, NY


Please help America’s VetDogs make a difference in the lives of veterans by participating in the America's VetDogs Run & Dog Walk (Independence) to be held from July 13, 2021 to July 31, 2021. Due to Covid-19, this year's race will be virtual.

Despite everything that’s going on with the global pandemic, we remain 100% focused on helping servicemen and women who are living with disabilities receive a service dog of their own. America’s VetDogs is hosting this virtual run/walk event as a way to show support for America’s disabled veterans. Dogs are welcome to join you on your run/walk too!

Your support allow us to say "yes" to more veterans whose lives will be changed by a service dog trained specifically to assist their needs. Whether it's their first dog or their second, whether they've been an assistance dog user for one year or 50 years, our graduates tell us again and again about the miraculous ways their lives changed once they trained with a new partner with four paws. You have provided the gift of independence to veterans living everyday with disabilities, and YOU are helping them live a life without boundaries.

100% of your race entry fee goes to America's VetDogs!

Register for the run online for a $30 donation fee (plus processing fees).
