Showing We Care About Military Dogs and Active Personnel
Samantha Phillips , vet tech student
While perusing Pinterest one day, veterinary technology student, Samantha Phillips discovered the idea to create care packages for military dogs and their handlers. She loved the idea so much she contacted the vet tech program chair at Globe University-Green Bay.
“The military seems to have a hard time getting responses from civilians and stuff,”Phillips said. “I just want them to realize that we are thinking about them, not just the handlers, but also the dogs because the dogs aren’t recognized as much. To help them and ease their trip.”
Phillips has a personal connection to those serving in the military. Her grandfather served in the Marines for three tours. Project facilitator, Maggie Lee, CVT and staff member at Globe Green Bay is a veteran as well.
