Your generous gift will allow Diamonds in the Ruff to attempt the Guinness World Records title for Largest Dog Wedding Ceremony and raise money for K9s for Warriors and 24 other service animal organizations and Chicagoland animal rescue groups.

K9s For Warriors exists because of a fierce dedication to saving the lives of both Veterans and rescue dogs. Roughly 20 Veterans die by suicide every day, and K9s For Warriors is determined to change that. With donations like yours, our focus is to educate, raise awareness and funds for service animal training organizations and local rescue groups on a mission to improve mental health with the help of our canine friends. A perfect marriage- with a majority of dogs coming from high-kill rescue shelters, these dedicated organizations build an unwavering bond that facilitates the collective healing and recovery of those struggling with mental health issues.

Beyond raising awareness and funds for service dog groups and rescue organizations, Diamonds in the Ruff promises to be a light-hearted and cheerful day full of meeting new friends, entertainment, raffles, treats, and many more surprises!
