Cammies & Canines raises funds to provide care packages to homeless vets to aid with their basic daily needs.

Cammies & Canines Sanctuary rescues homeless dogs or dogs close to being euthanized and trains them as service dogs to help vets heal.
Their family friendly event on Saturday will feature local and veteran-owned vendors along with raffles, activities for kids and more.
Protector Brewery - which is also veteran-owned and operated – will also donate a portion of beer sales that day to Cammies & Canines.
