Mel Coleman, vice president and 5th generation of the founding Coleman family, presented a graduation certificate to Alicia and Gabe, a veteran and service dog pair at the annual Pups4Patriots Gala in Palm Beach, Fla., on Thursday, Jan. 23, 2020. Last year, Coleman Natural Foods pledged to donate almost $1 million to the organization.

“Last year as I sat in this room, I was moved by the meaningful work that American Humane was doing through Pups4Patriots and knew that I didn’t just want to be a bystander,” said Mel Coleman, vice president of Coleman Natural Foods. “That’s why we pledged to fund the training for more than two dozen dogs over the next few years.” 

In addition to their 2019 pledge, this year Coleman Natural Foods donated a luxury car for auction, with proceeds benefiting the Pups4Patriots program. Learn more at Bidding for Good.
