wishuponahero.com offers Wish Upon a Hero - I wish to raise $500 to donate to @PetsforPatriots in memory of my dog Shep for Charity.
My dog Shep passed away last Tuesday (June 19). He had been my constant companion for 14 years. He has help me through some dark times in my life. He was there for me when my grandmother passed away in 2004. I have also struggled with depression but over the last few years I have lost a lot of weight by walking and eating right. I would walk with Shep as much as I could but he started having problems with his hips so I had cut back. He went down pretty fast over the last few days. I was planning to take him to the vet Tuesday but I went out and checked on him and he was gone. There is a group on twitter called @PetsForPatriots that I have helped out with retweets and getting Celebrity followers. Helping them on twitter has also helped me beat my depression. Pets for Patriots helps Veterans and members of the Military with pet adoptions. Many Veterans struggle with depression and PTSD and having a pet that is there for you all the time and doesn't ask for much from you but gives you so much love can be very helpful dealing with depression. I want to try to raise $500 to donate to Pets For Patriots in Shep's memory so that others can know the love that a shelter pet can give.

Thanks. I am handling it better than I would have ever thought. I have made a lot of changes in my life over the last couple of years. I have lost a lot of weight. And have started helping out non profit groups on twitter. Helper others has helped me with my depression. That is one reason why I want to help out @PetsforPatriots they help out two of my favorite groups Veterans and shelter pets.

I will be contributing in the next couple days. Tried yesterday, but WUAH was having issues when I tried signing up for the site. I will try again.

Sounds like Shep was an awesome dog/friend/pet/family member. I'm sure he's looking down on you, hoping you're happy.

My pup's nearing 12 years of age. I really don't know what I'd do without his pestering barking every time he sees me when I visit my parents

May Shep Rest in Peace. Pet's are like our family members, so sad to say goodbye. I am going through a pet related crisis right now. Our 11 year old Greyhound has become ill. It appears he is doing better. That changes day to day.
