TVH in the Americas (TVH), is sponsoring two puppies in training at the National Service Dogs (NSD) organization in Ontario, Canada.
This TVHCares initiative covers each puppy’s veterinary, training, and care expenses for the first year.
TVHCares is TVH’s program that encourages employees to get involved and make an impact in their communities.
NSD has pioneered the program of breeding, training, and placing Labrador and Golden Retrievers to help autistic children and their families.
The dogs are trained to increase safety levels and improve the bolting common in autistic children.
The pups are now headed to foster families to start training.
In 2011, NSD launched their PTSD program to help veterans deal with anxiety and transitioning into mainstream society.
