You Are Invited to Appa’s Homecoming Party!

Appa is still in training but he is coming home for 3-6 months to bond with his boy. We couldn’t be more excited to connect with our furry companion, especially as Noah has a particularly dour outlook of late. He needs an intervention. Puppy love should do the trick. And we are picking him up TODAY!

If you want to celebrate with us, join #LinkYourLife and #LinkYourCompassion on Twitter and Facebook today with the hashtag #DogParty. Because that’s what’s up. It’s a party, friends! You can even buy Appa a gift. Our Service Poodle has a wish list. Find it here


As always, you can donate directly to Noah and Appa’s GoFundMe. Without your support, this couldn’t be a reality. Now excuse me while I do a Snoopy dance. 🎉🎉🎉🎉🐩🐩🐩🐩
