On December 12, Guardian Angels for Soldier’s Pet attended a event in support of Marine Wing Communications Squadron 38. We had an information table set up inside the Ruben H. Fleet Science Center in Balboa Park San Diego, CA. The venue was closed for this special event. There were nearly 900 Marines and their friends/family in attendance. We were able to speak with a great number of attendees around how our organization can support them during their upcoming deployment, as well as how the friends/family can support other Marine units deploying now or in the future by fostering.

We distributed many MSM flyers and general information brochures as well as dog bones with the “business cards” tied to them with ribbon. We also offered tootsie pops with info attached to the children or families without pets to bring the bone home to.  Many people were interested in learning more about the MVP Sanctuary and how they can make a donation.

All in all, I think this was a successful event and we looking forward to developing the relationships we have started with many of the FRO’s here at Miramar and Pendleton.
