On January 30, 2013 California Senator Richard Roth sent a letter of support to Big Paws Canine Foundation.

Dear Mr. Slavik:

I am honored to offer this letter of support to Big Paws Canine Foundation. Your commitment to providing assistance dogs to disabled veterans and first responders is admirable and demonstrates your concern for our military heroes and those who risk their lives for others. As you know, many veterans return to civilian life with visible and invisible wounds related to their military service. Your organization serves to mitigate the severe effects of those injuries with compassion and understanding. In addition to assisting our military, you are also a provider of much-needed jobs within our region-an issue I pledged to work on during my campaign for State Senate. Thank you for your service to our Nation and your continuing support of veterans in Inland Southern California. Again, I look forward to working with you in bringing jobs and veterans assistance to our district and the state.


Richard D. Roth
Senator, 31st District
