Two Any Solider care packages - thanks, couponing!

I started clipping coupons for two of our fellow AFC friends and decided to try to coupon for care packages, too. I found troops thanks to AnySoldier.com. Being a dog trainer and canine behaviorist I wanted to support people in K9 units. I found a few!

Here are my care boxes:




His - he is a K9 handler in Afghanistan. He and his dog are in the Navy and are assigned to an extremely remote area to aid the army. He lives in a cave/mud hut and only has a mess hall available to him - and one that serves “hog parts” for chow at least twice a week. I took items from his list - including a very durable toy for his canine partner.

Total spent: about $10.50

Side note: if you’re looking for a VERY heavy-duty dog toy go with anything from the Tuffy line.




Hers - this one is going to a female in a multi-branch K9 military unit in Afghanistan. These canines are bomb-sniffing dogs. Her box is identical to the “his” box save the hair ties - I got these as free samples for sending a complimentary email to Goody.

Total spent: about $7.50


Thanks to couponing the total cost of these packages will be less than the shipping. The dog toys were $5.99 each on clearance - the majority of the cost!


My next challenge: send out two dog supply-only packages. I need to find more dog treat/food or store-specific coupons. I'm trying to get a donation box set up at my locally-owned pet store.


Thanks so much, AFC, for teaching me so many things! It's so nice to be able to afford to do this sort of activity; I've wanted to do so since I was very young. <3

I love your idea, I did the same thing for the dogs that helped with the search in Joplin after the tornado. I try to send a box once a month through the link you gave me or through the link started by BigShirley! I used to send boxes to her overseas, now she is home with her little one but her unit has been deployed again so I am sending boxes to her friends in the medical unit.

In fact, my DD and I are getting ready to get boxes together with her friends for a summer project, they are all 13, really smart girls, and of course I am ready the next time they say "MOM, I'm Bored!"
