NS Nunavut Command
Funding: So how does the funding at the Paws Fur Thought initiative work?
When we first launched the NS Nunavut Command of the Royal Canadian Legion stepped up and became our charitable entity through their Benevolent Fund. Funds donated are sent directly to the Command, are receipted and held in a separate account. As veterans in need are identified, funds are requisitioned and sent directly to the schools. This was how the program worked. Very Simple structure.
Several years later, Wounded Warriors Canada realized the value that Paws Fur Thought and service dogs in general were providing to our veterans in need. So now we also receive funding from WWC.
We cannot thank Valerie Mitchell-Vienotte and all of their wonderful staff who have stepped in and helped us execute on the mission of pairing service dogs with those who battle PTSD.
Both organizations provide charitable tax receipts and have been instrumental in making "Pawsome" things happen.
