Amy Ahonen was well-known as a hockey player and outdoor enthusiast. She was last seen July 8, 2011. In March of 2014, it was confirmed that bones found in two different Denver area locations were Amy’s. The family exhausted funds in search of Amy and had buried her but weren’t able to afford a headstone at this time. In addition, the family needed to pick up Amy’s Jeep which had been impounded for nearly three years.
That’s when DAWG Nation swung into action. The car was repaired and detailed free of charge. A custom quilt was presented to the family depicting Amy’s life in Colorado and check was presented to the family to cover the costs of a headstone.
