What do Butch Cassidy, a Pet Sitting Service in New York, and a Girl Scout Troop Have in Common?
They all have tribute bricks at the Military Working Dog Memorial at Rancho Coastal Humane Society (RCHS). Our Military Working Dog (WMD) Memorial is the only private memorial west of the Mississippi. There are no restrictions about who or what you can honor while you’re supporting RCHS programs for people and pets.
There’s a brick honoring “Butch Cassidy, Man’s Best Friend.” Girl Scout Troop 1914 has a brick “Honoring All Military Dogs.”
When a visitor from Waggs’N’Whiskers Pet Sitting in Vestal, New York, visited the MWD Memorial, they bought a brick.
Maria Cohen’s friends bought a brick to honor her 19 years of service as a RCHS volunteer.
There’s a brick in memory of “Gilbert, The World’s Smallest Giant.”
There’s a brick honoring “John Patusza. USMC, Vietnam, Purple Heart.” Another one is engraved “Military Working Dog Borris.”
One brick says, “Elinor Troester. She always had a dog by her side and a horse to ride.”
The bricks honor family members, those who have served our country, civic leaders who have stood for the rights and welfare of animals, and pets who changed our lives.
You get up to 4 lines with up to 18 characters per line including punctuation and spaces.
From now through November 30th bricks are only $50, instead of $75! You can buy bricks for yourself, in honor or memory of a special human or pet, or give them as gifts.
Visit the Military Working Dog Memorial at Rancho Coastal Humane Society at 389 Requeza Street in Encinitas to pay your respects to those who stood in harm’s way – on 4 paws or 2 feet – and to read the tributes to the people and organizations who support RCHS.
