This year we will continue to be active in commemorating historical events throughout South Carolina. We will also be participating in service projects through our Kids Helping Kids committee, as well as projects honoring the men and women that protect the freedoms our ancestors originally fought to gain. So join in the fun! Children ages birth through 21 may join us. All you need to do is prove your ancestry to a man or woman who participated/supported the colonists during the American Revolution.
"Good citizens cannot be made suddenly. They must grow..."
Every year, at least 3
million animals are put to death in shelters. And every day, 18 American
military heroes take their own lives. These nightmares aren’t going away. Until they do, Canine
Angels’ mission is to rescue dogs from shelters and prepare them to serve
disabled veterans and first responders. Rick Kaplan, founder of
the non-profit, Canine Angels, has been training working service dogs for
people with disabilities for more than 20 years. Mr. Kaplan has trained dogs to
assist those with hearing disabilities, seizures and PTSD, as well as stability
and mobility issues. Working with his two personal chocolate Labrador service
dogs, Fred & Ginger, he perfected his unique method of modifying canine
behavior to connect with their natural instincts and achieve breakthrough
training results in the least possible time. His deep appreciation for veterans
and the sacrifices they’ve made for our safety and freedom led to the founding
in 2011 of Canine Angels, nonprofit public-benefit corporation.
