These two puppies were able to be purchased with the money raised at last year's Dining Out for the Dogs.

For the second year, WMMR's Preston & Steve and White Dog Cafe will host Dining Out for the Dogs, a fundraiser for Alpha Bravo Canine.

The organization provides trained service dogs to U.S military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury and other combat-related disabilities.

Dining Out for the Dogs will take place at all three White Dog Cafe locations (Wayne, Haverford and University City) on Monday, Aug. 20. To participate, make a reservation for 5 p.m. or later.

WMMR's on-air personalities will be at each restaurant to dine with guests and host drawings for prizes, including a commissioned pet portrait by artist Jay McClellan, whose artwork is on the walls of White Dog Cafe.

This year, there will be a kissing booth too, where dinner guests can make a donation to cuddle and kiss one of the Alpha Bravo Canine pups.

Guests can also donate $20 to book a VIP (very important puppy) table, which will guarantee outdoor seating with their dog for the event.

Each White Dog Cafe location is aiming to raise at least $2,000, which is the average cost of a puppy to train for Alpha Bravo Canine.

portion of all proceeds generated on Aug. 20 will go to the organization.
