Dog toys and accessories were collected by Greencastle-Antrim High School students during a three-day push to raise money for the Save-a-Vet, Save-a-Pet program.

This was part of a service project for Meagan Brockway’s students in honor of Veterans Day. Assisted by National Honor Society members, students raised $500 for the program.

Part of the money came from Greencastle veterans who attended a lunch in their honor at Veterans of Foreign Wars, Post 6319 on Nov. 11.

The Franklin County Save-a-Vet, Save-a-Pet program carefully pairs selected shelter dogs with veterans who are suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. The funds will go toward training classes and other program supplies.
