    There is a growing need for dogs in service and with so many dogs in shelters, just waiting for someone who needs them, what could be a better idea than to give these dogs a purpose in life???
    Anyone who knows anything about dogs knows that they crave attention and approval from their masters.
    So, why not cast a vote in favor of funding for this growing need. It won't cost you a single penny!!!

    I think this is a great idea.

    When I was growing up, my dad was in the Lions Club and their charity was the Leader Dog for the Blind. I finally convinced my dad that we need to take in a dog for this organization. He finally relented one year and we got a dog and gave it it's first year basic training. I think this was one of the most rewarding things I ever did in my life. It was hard to let her go so she could do her next years training and learn how to be a leader dog.

    As a trainer who works with dogs as service and therapy animals and who works with monkeys as service helpers for parapylegic people, I can not say enough about the potential for people to be helped by service and therapy animals.

    Dogs can help blind people navigate in the world. They can help people with missing limbs. And they can make social life possible for people with conditions such as autism and PTSD. One of my dogs visits kids at a local hospital and has worked in a school where she encouraged kids who struggled with reading to read to her with incredible results.

    I'm not a big fan of soda, but I'll support Pepsi in this one and encourage you todo the same.

    Thanks so much for your support guys!!
    Let me state just one more time... going to this website and voting for FETCH U. does NOT cost one single penny... you don't have to buy anything or be a Pepsi fan. I signed up 10 days ago and I've not received any unwanted emails from Pepsi or anyone affiliated with Pepsi...no spam, no coupons...nothing.
    Which is good... it shows that this is legit and not something that Pepsi is doing to gain any notoriety or sales!!
    Just log on...and VOTE for FETCH U. And PLEASE, pass this on to your family and friends!!! It's a win-win chance to help people and dogs seeking a purpose and unconditional love!!!!


    If you're having trouble reading the fine print on the flyer... here's the link:

    THANKS for all the support guys! you have no idea how much you've helped! please, i know this is a silly request, TWITTER! lol
    I have never done the "twitter thing" before but have realized this resource for internet business is ummmmmm, different?

    anyway, more votes can be gethered by letting people know about your voting via twitter. i can't stand being on it, its just not me, but its apparently helping.

    also, on www.fetchdogstore.com we have changed our second page to a blurb about FETCH UNIVERSITY and we have also post our new PUMPKIN treats which are a natural sedative.

    fyi, regular ordering will end soon for the holidays. we're about to start a promotion where if you buy 20 bucks worth of treats plus shipping, then we'll mail $10.00 worth of treats to anyone for christmas...all you pay is half the regular shipping price of $5.00.

    letting you all be the first to know! thanks thanks thanks again!

    I voted, but did not give away any of my personal information. Having worked in marketing, I know exactly how corporations use this data (don't believe it when these web sites declare that the information you provide won't be supplied to outside parties). There's no reason why they need a voter's full name, birthdate, email address ... no reason at all.

    I entered an incorrect email, name and birthdate, and that worked just fine.

    Great idea, but shitty corporate scams to secure consumer information is not my cup of tea. There is little chance that the cause you vote for will secure the funding. That in itself is wrong, in my opinion.

    There are dozens of reputable service dog non-profits out there. I recommend donating some cash to one near you.

    in response,

    Thanks for the vote of confidence, love the CAN DO attitude, ha ha. There is a chance we'll get the funding. A VERY HUGE chance just so ya know. I find in disturbing trying to understand how anyone can think about themselves when thinking about a cause which is the purest form of charity out there. You may not get the full scope of this project because two major points have been excluded due to their complexities, but i would hope your heart would be opened to spreading the word to everyone you know about our mission.

    to re readdress the funding comment: FETCH University WILL most definitely receive the funding through our campaign with the pepsi refresh project. I agree, the funding may not come from pepsi, but if everyone, including you, forwards the info to everyone they know SOMEONE or Many someones WILL see the need and provide the funding.

    FETCH university is being form because the local charities do not receive the donations needed due to mistrust and lack of regulations causing people to question the treatment of the animals. Due to EVERYONE's lack of time to fully research these issues, an organization which is born of a true heart is needed to collect and distribute donated and raised funds to the organizations locally to you who care enough about their efforts to follow regulations set up for the well being of all involved.

    Please vote more and spread the word! you never know who may be reached, and i hope we all agree FETCH U is needed

    Just to inform everyone of our progress, on day ten of our campaign for the pepsi refresh project, and angel investor cam forward and offered as much money as we need to MAKE FETCH HAPPEN, We're currently working out all the details and organizing an amazing national campaign. you will be hearing about FETCH for years to come.
    check out FETCH Dog Store, FETCH Dog Treats, FETCH University, and FETCH U on Facebook for future updates. none of this was possible without the well wishes of AMERICANS like yourselves. Thank you and wait until you see what we have in store. our concept has never been attempted before but we know it will be a huge success.
    If in Dallas, look for our first two stores in march. a full sized store, location yet to be determined, and a mini concept store at the W Hotel. Our goal is 50 stores in 5 years and to have every state on board with utilizing their prison's to train animals for the needy.
    Thanks again
    Daniel
