The Desert Dogs Say Thanks

On Sunday, July 13, 2014, the Arizona desert dogs walk team embarked from a mall in Las Vegas with their heads and tails held high representing Arizona and raising money for the American Council of the Blind's Brenda Dillon memorial walk. Thanks to all our Arizona friends and family who by their monetary support helped us raise over $1200. The desert team brought home a platinum plaque for fund raising achievement and won the award for bringing the youngest walker in attendance.
