Piper the Puppy Makes Public Debut

It was an exciting day here at the American Red Cross-Dallas Area Chapter as “Piper the Puppy” made his public debut. Suzy Bashore, the idea generator for “Piper the Puppy” and a member of the American Red Cross Tiffany Circle Society of Women Leaders in Dallas, joined local Red Cross volunteers as “Piper the Puppy” was loaded onto an American Red Cross Disaster Relief Vehicle for the first time today.

“Piper the Puppy” is our newest and cutest tool to help local children affected by disaster. For a $100 donation, you can adopt a “Piper the Puppy” to be given out to a child at the next local disaster. As a donor, you can choose to be notified when your “Piper the Puppy” is handed to a child. Not only will your “Piper the Puppy” bring comfort to local children affected by a disaster, it will allow us to provide shelter, three meals, a cot, two blankets and basic hygiene items for one day.

Sponsor your “Piper the Puppy” today and put a smile on a child's face tomorrow!

How Piper the Puppy Works
  • You make a $100 donation to the American Red Cross-Dallas Area Chapter.
  • The Red Cross writes your name on Piper’s paw and then places him on one of our Disaster Relief Vehicles.
  • Volunteers hand out your “Piper the Puppy” to a child affected by a disaster.
  • An alert is sent to you when your Piper has been distributed.
  • You feel great knowing that your “Piper the Puppy” is being loved by a child in need.
