A Dog for Jessica

August 27 | 11:00 am – 5:00 pm

6405 Brittmoore Rd

Houston, TX 77041

Imagine if it were you: Most children want a dog – your child NEEDS one. Most parents can get them one – you can’t.

Jessica is a brave little girl who was born with Down syndrome and heart defects that left her weakened and required several surgeries. Her therapist has determined that a service dog would be of inestimable help in her continued improvement, development, and personal safety in learning to navigate the world in ways we take for granted.

Unfortunately, such specially and intensively trained service dogs are expensive; they are not covered under insurance, and companies that supply free ones have long waiting lists and are caught in catch-22 policies due to Jessica’s age. A service dog to help Jessica with her needs costs $26,000.00. So we are going to get this little girl her dog with your help with a benefit featuring a BBQ Dinner, Live and Silent Auctions, Raffle, and Live Music. Providing items for the raffle and auctions are a great way to get exposure your company’s product or service to an involved market while helping someone in need.

$10 Ticket Includes:

• Barbecue Plate Dinner

• Live Music

• Raffle

• Live and Silent Auctions

All proceeds go to 4 Paws For Jessica

For Tickets: stop by The Hot Dog Shop or call
