PayCargo assists assistance dog group

[ February 2, 2021   //   ]

Supply chain payment specialist is to support America’s VetDogs, which pairs highly-trained service and guide dogs with injured veterans and first responders.

PayCargo has become a Lifetime Graduate Sponsor of the non-profit organisation, which helps people who have been physically disabled, are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, or are experiencing vision loss or seizures.

PayCargo’s support will go towards long-term aftercare for a veteran and their service dog after their graduation from the VetDogs training program. It costs over $50,000 to breed, raise, train, and place a single assistance dog.

PayCargo president and CEO Americas chief executive, Lionel van der Walt said: “As a veteran myself, this charity is close to my heart and the VetDogs’ team provides renewed freedoms and independence for those who have sacrificed a lot for the betterment of society.”

Walt served five years in the South African Air Force prior to starting his career in the aviation industry.
