Celebrate National Assistance Dog Week!

A mother and her son walk around a crowded mall with a service dog at their side. They stop to look through some tshirts, when suddenly the child, who has autism, wanders off. The child's mother immediately tells the service dog to find her son, and the dog is off, following the child's trail with the mother close behind. As the scent grows stronger, the dog moves faster and in less than 5 minutes the dog has located the child.

Assistance dogs can do amazing things, and they never stop working for their partners. Today is the beginning of National Assistance Dog Week, and we would like to celebrate all of the wonderful ways that service dogs change lives.

All week, we'll be posting stories about some of our service dogs and their partners. Then on Thursday, we're all going to meet at Doc Holliday's in New Cumberland, PA to celebrate all of the things service dogs do.

You're invited to join us!

Service dogs and service dogs-in-training are welcome to come! We'll be on the deck at Doc's. Unfortunately, we won't be able to pay for your meal, but we can guarantee that you'll have a great time seeing old friends and making new ones, and of course, meeting the dogs!

Please RSVP if you can make it.

We're looking forward to seeing you and celebrating all the ways service dogs change lives!
