Homeless veteran Harold Palmquist has traveled over 5,000 on his bike with his dog Daisy. Palmquist is raising money for Veterans and Their Pets. The group helped him keep his dog when he wasn’t allowed to bring her into a shelter.
“They fostered my dog for me,” he said. “They kept us together, so she had her homeless shelter, and I had my homeless shelter.”
It was that event that inspired Palmquist to travel the country on his bike. He loaded up his dog Daisy and began a journey that took him all the way from California to the coast of Georgia. Palmquist said he wants to raise awareness for other veterans and their pets.
