2016 Service Dog Graduation Event
The October 22nd graduation event celebrated the 2016 graduating and soon-to-graduate total of 19 amazing service dog teams. Generous puppyraisers from Guide Dogs of America traveled miles to share the celebration of awards, speeches, food and fun with their career-change dogs that now enhance the lives of veterans and first responders.
