Lonely Acres Bulldogs & the American Legion Riders post 91 in Austin, MN 

wanted to find a way to give back in a special way, so the concept was born to give the gift of a Bulldog companionship to one of our Minnesota Veterans. 

A general idea of the process : A friend, co-worker, family member, etc can nominate a Veteran or active duty military person they feel deserving and would be truly helped by the companionship of a Bulldog. A nomination includes writing a 1200 (min) word essay describing why you feel this individual makes a good candidate, a little about their life and situation, and how you feel they would benefit.

There will be required forms that must be submitted if you are considered for the bulldog puppy. Those will include and not be limited to: Most recent DD214, Copy of MN Drivers License, Proof of MN residency. ((More requirements will be added as campaign information is completed))

Entry is open Throughout the year





Submit an essay or a 5 Minute video

To be eligible for entry in this Campaign

Essay must meet the following specific requirements:

Essay: Twelve hundred (1200)characters (Minimum), text.

Explain, in English, why your family member, or friend, or you yourself could benefit from the companionship of a Bulldog Emotional Support Dog

(make sure it’s enough to tell the story about whom you are nominating & why)

Application deadline is September 22nd 2020
