I have created a New Program of sending "Care Packages" to our "Military Working Dog Teams" stationed in Afghanistan. I began working with MSgt Brandon Tillman with the USAF. He was the Kennel Master and distributed them to all of his teams encompassing the Army, Air Force and the Navy. I ship healthy meals, snacks, treats, grooming brushes and pull toys to support the morale of our Military Working Dog Teams. Monetary Donations are needed to purchase supplies and for shipping. You can send a donation to: Mama Cindy Soldier Program, 5002 Old Bald Hill Road, Hemlock, New York 14466.

As of February 1, 2020, Mama Cindy has shipped 384 "Care Packages" of supplies weighing 2,596
pounds to our Military Working Dog teams Stationed in Kuwait, Afghanistan, Africa and Saudi Arabia.

Mama Cindy is working with Shelia Howard stationed in Kuwait She is one of the Military Dog Team handlers. At the Kennels, Shelia is known as "Mama She". Uma is Shelia's Military Working Dog. Uma is a Black English Lab that is 7 years old, 24" tall and weighs 41.8 pounds they have been together for five years. Check out the video http/://
