Fetch your purpose and raise a future service dog
Sit and stay for a while with current Canine Companions volunteers – along with a few trained dogs - to learn how service dogs help clients experience enhanced independence and how you can apply to help raise puppies for the program.
What’s next: Informational sessions are set for 10:30 a.m.-noon Saturday, June 3, at Southwest Regional and 10:30 a.m.-noon Saturday, June 10, at the Golden Triangle Branch Library.
Dog-loving volunteers are needed to help turn puppies into service dogs.
The bottom line: As a destination for discovery for all ages, the Fort Worth Public Library offers opportunities to learn and experience new things and grow beyond traditional classroom settings.
Canine Companions provides service dogs to adults, children and veterans with disabilities and provides facility dogs to professionals working in healthcare, criminal justice and in educational settings. Since its founding in 1975, Canine Companions’ dogs and follow-up services have been provided to clients at no cost.
