International Assistance Dog Week: August 3-9, 2014

As you know, our team loves to recognize animals doing great things for their human companions, and we place tremendous value on the countless ways that animals make our lives better.

International Assistance Dog Week was created to pay tribute to all of the devoted and hard-working dogs who spend their lives providing independence and security for individuals with disability-related limitations.  These dogs give people a quality of life that would otherwise be out of reach to them, and there is simply no amount of praise that is adequate for what these animals are doing.

The goals of International Assistance Dog Week include:

  • Recognize and honor assistance dogs
  • Raise awareness and educate the public about assistance dogs
  • Honor the people who raise and train puppies to become assistance dogs
  • Recognize heroic deeds performed by assistance dogs in our communities
