WDRV-FM’s Sherman & Tingle Show raised over $92,000 during their third annual “Give a Vet a Pet” campaign. In partnership with the 1 Pet – 1 Vet charitable organization, the show raised the money to provide dogs to local veterans suffering from PTSD.
The costs associated with providing each service dog total $15,000.
With last week’s monetary donations now confirmed, The Sherman & Tingle Show raised a total of $92,551.70 – enough to pair six separate service dogs with veterans who are in desperate need of the positive effects, emotional support and loving companionship these dogs provide.
Brian Sherman and Steve Tingle said they are always pleasantly surprised at the incredible outpouring of support this campaign conjures. “The Drive’s loyal fans are among the most generous on the planet. Our responsibility to the Chicago area community has always been a priority and to play a small part in providing better lives for Chicago-area veterans is an honor. Service animals can clearly improve the quality of veterans’ lives.”
