(7/25/18) ‘The dog days of summer’ means a day with a dog at the Children’s Museum.

A furry friend from Canine Companions for Independence dropped by and campers got to play with ‘Cash’, a facility dog at the Children’s Advocacy Center. 

The group focuses on dogs with a purpose, placing them in roles to serve people.

Victoria Fish with Canine Companions for Independence says, “We do P.T.S.D, hearing impaired, we range over 65 different disabilities and all of these dogs are trained in our facility in Orlando and we give them to the recipients free of charge.”

Macy Avery with the Children’s Advocacy Center says, “Kids and anyone need to be more aware of what these dogs do and can do for people across the world.”

Canine Companions for Independence is a national non-profit dedicated to the mission “help is a four- legged word.”
