Patriots and Paws is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity. They helped 1200 families last year and this year, so far, 850. This program helps American service men and women and their immediate families every year. They unite Veterans, Active Service Duty, Reservists with a dog so it can be trained to become a therapy, or service animal.

They also provide practical home furnishings and accessories, like beds, linens, sofas, chairs, tables, appliances, kitchen ware and many more items needed to set up a household. All at NO CHARGE to the Veteran.

About BPOE:
B.P.O.E. stands for The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (or as they are affectionately known, the Best People On Earth). Elks are American Citizens who want to save its great values; who love others and want to make sure they are healthy and happy; and who love life and want to contribute to it, as well as to share it. As a member, we find there is nothing better than serving our community through the various activities and charities supported by our local Elks Lodge. The Order of the Elks is a benevolent organization. Elks invest in their communities through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, meet the needs of today’s veterans, and improve the quality of life. If you want to be an Elk, please call Buena Park Elks Lodge No.2046 at 714-522-2853. Or call any Lodge in you area.
