Greensboro -- An internet-based business is hoping to make an annual tradition of a pet adoption fair.

The company wants to raise money and awareness of organizations that train service dogs for wounded veterans.

"Ma Cares" is an outreach division of MarketAmerica held the adoption fair on Saturday at its headquarters and invited a service dog in training to make an appearance.

Amy Renee is a psychatric service dog in training for her partner  and local war hero Sergeant Joseph Smith. Smith was attacked by insurgents on his 4th deployment to Afghanistan.  He suffered traumatic brain injury as well as a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the waist down.

Amy Renee is being trained by the Patriot Rovers who are benefitting from the adoption fair. 

People who came out, not only got to meet the animals but buy from local artisans there, too.  40 artisans donated a portion of their proceeds to the Patriot Rovers  program.
