Fundraiser - Paws & Effect Love, Raise, Train, Repeat Tee
Help us support Paws & Effect, a non-profit founded in 2006 that raises, trains, and places service dogs in the midwest and southeast. Paws & Effect was invited to place a facility dog within Asheville Fire Department as part of their mental health and resiliency efforts. Denali’s placement in Station 7 was complete in January 2020, benefitting both the firefighters assigned there and those that filter through on relief assignments. The pandemic has affected all first responders; the 30% prevalence rate for sub-clinical PTSD in Asheville Fire Department’s personnel is a concern. One of the things firefighters routinely express is how much they enjoy having Denali, that it makes their days a little bit better.
All proceeds from the sale of this shirt will go towards offsetting the ongoing costs of Denali's liability insurance while affording Paws & Effect the future opportunity to expand their service dog program within Asheville Fire Department.
At Roanline, we have close ties to Asheville firefighters and are proud to support the mission of Paws & Effect and our firefighters.
