PALM COAST, Fla. -- Kritters, an animal rescue group in Palm Coast, has raised $1022 for Operation Orion to help K9s for Warriors give custom-trained service dogs to veterans with PTSD. The Weaver Foundation is matching donations and so the Kritters group is actually giving more than $2,000.

The group put on a big fundraising event in Ormond Beach including everything from music, food, kissing booths, clowns and just good fellowship. Biker groups, pet lovers and supporters turned out.

Kritters helps rescue groups in Palm Coast areas by giving help for building fix-ups and vet bills and pet food.

A big thank-you to this group for its enthusiasm and hard work.

K9s for Warriors is a local non-profit based in Ponte Vedra.
