October 2018 Happy Tails!

Bindy and Fluke were recently chosen to become service dogs by  Veteran Service Dogs Organization (VSDO). VSDO matches shelter dogs with Veterans. The dogs and the veteran complete extensive training and are then certified with the State of Michigan as Service Dogs. This is an amazing opportunity for our shelter dogs and our nations Veterans. We will post additional updates as they become available. If you would like to know more about Veteran Service Dogs organization please check out their website or follow them on Facebook.
