U.S. Bank Pledges $150,000 to Support Dogs, Inc. of St. Louis

ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 23, 2013-- U.S. Bank has made a pledge to contribute $150,000 to Support Dogs, Inc. (SDI), a St. Louis-based non-profit organization that provides service dogs to individuals with physical and psychiatric disabilities. SDI's most recent program, Psychiatric Service Dogs, provides dogs to support individuals, including military veterans, with post traumatic stress disorder.

U.S. Bank’s gift, which will be made over the next two years, will support SDI’s “Building Opportunities” capital campaign and will help SDI fund its programs.

“U.S. Bank is honored to help SDI fund its capital campaign and assistance dog program,” said Joseph Imbs, president of U.S. Bank in St. Louis. “This is one way that U.S. Bank can say ‘thank you’ to military veterans who, along with the men and women who are serving on active duty or in the National Guard and Reserves, we owe our freedom to.”

“Support Dogs, Inc., is very grateful to U.S. Bank for this generous contribution,” said Bill Dahlkamp, executive director of Support dogs, Inc. “The new facility will not only benefit the disability community, but will also serve the entire St. Louis metropolitan community through our programs, including help us increase the number of trained assistance dogs that will benefit military veterans and help us train more volunteers in our pet therapy program.”

To find out more about Support Dogs, Inc., visit www.supportdogs.org.
