This program pairs truant (not delinquent) middle school teens with a golden retriever to train to be an assistance dog for individuals with physical disabilities.
The recipients of these amazing dogs have their lives changed in a remarkable way also. Each dog that graduates represents an opportunity for a person with physical challenges to lead a more productive and independent life. Our recipients happily report that their dog quickly becomes an integral part of their lives Their dog “opens doors” for them both literally and metaphorically, by providing a point of interest that few people can resist.
