Rancho Santa Fe-based nonprofit Laughing Pony Rescue, Inc. (LPR) hosted a free Veterans Day concert to honor and support those who serve and protect our country, including members of the military, police, and firefighters. Alex Woodard performed songs from his book and album series For The Sender, which was crafted from letters written by fans that are a true-life testament to life, love, and healing. The evening also featured a demonstration from Leisa Tilley-Grajek and her K9 Guardians, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to raise and train German Shepherds as service dogs for the purpose of providing them to veterans that suffer from PTSD, traumatic brain injury, and other service-related disabilities.

LPR is a nonprofit organization that works to rescue and rehabilitate unwanted, abused, and slaughter-bound horses of all breeds. The organization has rescued or assisted others in rescuing over 400 horses. Learn more at www.laughingponyrescue.com.
