Pets for Vets NH to hold motorcycle run

The nonprofit Pets for Vets New Hampshire chap­ter will hold a motorcycle run starting at the Milford VFW on Sunday, Aug. 16.

Registration is at 8 a.m., with kickstands up at 10. There will be a stop in Jaf­frey, and then the group will return to the Milford VFW for a barbecue at 1 p.m.

The bands Red Hot Rush, Bright Orange Blasto and Dented Aura will perform live. There will be a 50/50 raffle and silent auction.

Fees are $20 per bike, $10 per passenger and $15 for the barbecue only.

Pets for Vets is seeking donations of food, raffle items and auction items, as well as volunteers before, during and after the event.

Pets for Vets provides a second chance for returning veterans and shelter animals in New Hampshire. Many veterans returning home from deployment suffer from debilitating conditions like PTSD, social anxiety, depression and feelings of isolation. The organization seeks to help in the transi­tion back into a civilian life­style.

Pets for Vets evaluates veterans who could benefit from a companion animal and helps provide them with a forever friend from a local shelter.

Funds raised at the event will be used for animal fos­tering and training, vacci­nations of selected animals and welcome packages pro­vided to the veterans with their new best friend.
