Our event’s goal is to generate funds to support our veteran community and half of the point count for the Top Dog Trophy comes from the individual team fundraising efforts. 50% driving points + 50% fundraising points =the 2021 VetsRally4Vets Top Dog trophy. And those all-important bragging rights!
We have 8 military service teams in the competition: Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Marine Corps, Navy, NOAA, Space Force, and USPHS Commissioned Corps. Each team has the opportunity to raise funds and earn trophy points.
Fundraising is important, so we’ve made it easy! Just follow the steps below . . .

Every Donations Matters
Fundraising is a critical part of the VetsRally4Vets program. The training cost for an emotional support animal (ESA), almost always a dog, is between $5,000 to $10,000.00, and the cost for a fully trained service dog can be upwards of $60,000.00.
Our 2021 fundraising goal for the VetsRally4Vets Top Dog Trophy Challenge is $75,000.00. This amount will let us provide emotional support dogs and a meaningful cash contribution to organizations working directly with at-risk veterans.
This may seem like a modest goal but just imagine if these dogs save four lives. That’s four extended families that will remain together. Priceless!
