“Being born in Korea at the end of the Korean conflict, I grew up with a very acute awareness of the value of the sacrifices made by veterans all over the world as they fought to defend our liberty and freedom.

“I have always considered animals used in conflict as veterans, too, and rightfully they deserve to have similar recognition. More than ever our society now understands and recognizes the value of animals in all aspects of our daily lives.

“Eminata Group’s philosophy of changing lives through education, service and care embodies the spirit of all our war veterans (both man and beast), and I am proud to sponsor the Animals in War Dedication Project.”

As Presenting Sponsor, Eminata will have a prominent role in the unveiling ceremony, tentatively scheduled for October 2012.

Total funds raised to date: $57,000.
Total cost required is $147,000 with a deadline of July 2012 for funding to be in place.
