Brantley Gilbert is doing his part to help support America’s service men and women. The singer and new dad has teamed with the PEDIGREE brand.
They will be giving companion dogs to eight veterans at various stops on his “The Ones That Like Me” tour this spring. PEDIGREE will work with Custom Canine Unlimited to train and transport the dogs, and will also provide the veteran with a one-year supply of food.
Brantley says, "Nothing helps heal like an animal's love," "These dogs aren't just good dogs, they're trained to help their veteran, and new companion, cope with stress, memories and triggers people can't see and provide them with a sense of solid grounding.”
He adds, “These dogs and people are all heroes. Seeing the faces of these vets when their dog comes bouncing into the room melts your heart. I know for these families, beyond being the family's new best friend, these animals are helping heal things for these soldiers in ways nothing else can."
Brantley Gilbert’s “The Ones That Like Me Tour,” featuring special guests Josh Phillips and Aaron Lewis, runs through June 14th. The new leg kicks off April 19th in Lexington, Kentucky.
