Allen Parton, Founder of Hounds for Heroes and his working dog EJ – who starred in the BBC TV documentary Secret Lives of Dogs Celebrity – will be visiting Drove Vets, Swindon on 20 March to collect a cheque to train another dog.
Jane Carter at Drove Veterinary Hospital said: "All the staff are delighted to announce that we have exceeded our target of £5,000 to sponsor a dog for Hounds for Heroes by raising £6,073.49.
"We held numerous events across Swindon throughout 2013 and had fantastic support from local people, who all seemed to take this amazing charity to heart."
Hounds for Heroes provides specially trained assistance dogs to injured and disabled men and women of both the UK Armed Forces and Civilian Emergency Services to provide help and practical support leading to an enhanced quality of life for our clients.
