Logomark's First Sponsored Service Dog Matched With Veteran
Logomark's first sponsored service dog has graduated from his Shelter to Soldier training program and has been matched with a veteran. “Scout,” a black and brown male German Shepherd, was rescued last year and named by Print Globe’s Kelsey Schwartz through an online naming competition held by Logomark in February 2021.
Shelter to Soldier is a CA 501c3 nonprofit organization that adopts dogs from local shelters and trains them to become psychiatric service dogs for post-9/11 combat veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or other psychological injuries associated with traumatic service experiences.
“Scout has been a great addition for me and my family," said Adam Fleener, the U.S. Navy Veteran paired with Scout. "I am so happy that I was able to find Shelter to Soldier. We are grateful to have Scout in our lives."
Having some initial orthopedic challenges, Scout’s journey has required extra dedication to his medical care and physical development.
“Scout’s story is special, unique and a true ‘rescue story’ given what he’s been through, and it’s all thanks to Logomark!” said Graham Bloem, co-founder, president and training director for Shelter to Soldier.
“We are grateful to be in a position to support Shelter to Soldier and proud to help build awareness of their commitment to ‘saving lives two at a time,'” said Clive Goldberg, chief operating office for Logomark.
The company is planning additional adoptions, and will be announcing new naming contests later this year.
The Perka, iCool and Work brands are all official sponsors of Shelter to Soldier, and a portion of all proceeds is donated to the organization. Logomark continues to employ veterans at all levels of the organization, from production to the executive team.
