VA Dogs of Texas is a non-profit organization that is included on the tour. They do great work in support of Veterans. Thank you to all the tour riders who donated to VA Dogs of Texas.
Their Operations Coordinator, Clayson Lambert, has provided the following update for the tour riders:
"After a long period of anticipation and preparation, VA Dogs will be taking delivery of their new dog kennel building. The twenty four by sixty foot pre-fab unit, built by Amish carpenters, is set for arrival in late January 2021. It will contain sixteen individual dog runs. The inside portion of the dog runs is climate controlled.
With the arrival and installation of the kennels, VA Dogs will no longer have to turn down rescue dogs due to a lack of holding space.
The kennels will be located on VA Dogs 20-acre training facility in Mountain Home Texas, a short distance from their home office in Kerrville.
Preparations for arrival, which are still underway, include moving fences to widen the entry corridor to the property, clearing trees, setting new electrical poles and water lines and pouring a slab the kennels will rest on."
Information on how you may make voluntary donations to VA Dogs of Texas will be posted on the tour website soon.
