Gatesville, TX, January 31, 2011 – Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet announced that they have officially gone into a partnership with rising country artist Lucas Hoge as their official spokesperson.

“I am honored to be working with Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet,” said Hoge. “I’ve made a commitment to supporting our troops and animals over the years, and to find an organization that combines these passions was a perfect match.”
Focused on supporting our men and women in uniform who are serving overseas, the organization has reunited over 104 pets with their military service members after a deployment to harm’s way. They do this through the generous support of volunteers and a network of over 2,500 potential foster homes across the country.
“We are thrilled that Lucas is joining our cause and helping to get the word out,” said Linda Spurlin-Dominik, founder and CEO of Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet. “The passion that he has towards our military and animals is identical to our organization and we look forward to working with him.”

Lucas will help promote the organization to help spread the word about our mission. Lucas will also attend and promote organization’s events, fundraisers and media opportunities when available.
