PHILADELPHIA, PA – Pet Valu, a specialty retailer of premium pet food, treats, toys and accessories will hold a fundraiser from July 4 to September 11, 2015 for The United States War Dogs Association, a national nonprofit that promotes the long history of military service dogs, establishes permanent War Dog Memorials and educates the public about the invaluable service of these canines to the United States.

Customers can purchase American flag bandanas for $5 each or give a donation of any denomination to have their names posted on paper paws in their local Pet Valu stores. All proceeds will benefit The United States War Dogs Association and provide state-of-the-art equipment, fund transportation back to the United States after service, help find forever homes for Veteran War Dogs and memorialize fallen four-legged soldiers. 

“The work of The United States War Dogs Association is very near and dear to our hearts at Pet Valu,” said Joe Dent, Vice President and U.S. General Manager for Pet Valu. “We are honored to say this is our fifth year raising funds for this worthy nonprofit.”

More than $400,000 has been raised for The United States War Dogs Association, through the Pet Valu fundraiser, since its inception in 2010.  During last year’s event alone, $215,000 was raised. The money has enabled the creation of The United States War Dogs Association’s free prescription drug program for veteran War Dogs, many of which require multiple expensive prescriptions after service.

“We are incredibly grateful for the money and awareness Pet Valu raises for our organization each year,” said Ron Aiello, President of The United States War Dogs Association. “Thank you to Pet Valu and to all who donate to our organization.”

Customers are encourage to share photos of their pets wearing the bandanas on social media with the #PatrioticPets. Find us at:, Twitter @PetValuUS and Instagram @PetValu_US.  For more information, please visit
