UPenn launches therapy dog program to assist America’s heroes
PHILADELPHIA – You may notice more dogs on the street as you walk around University City, thanks to a new service dog program launched at the University of Pennsylvania that provides military members with a therapy dog.
The program, a partnership with the nonprofit, Warrior Canine Connection, describes its work as “mission-based trauma recovery,” where Veterans get to interact with dogs from birth through adulthood, training them to act as service dogs for fellow service men and women.
