If you or a loved one have ever considered getting a dog to help with any type of disability, this is the place you need to be. All are welcome; open to the public.
This event will include a class on the difference between assistance animals and a class on navigating service animal law. There will be speakers from the following organizations:
-- Paws With A Cause
-- SuperiorLand Pet Partners
-- Leader Dogs for the Blind
-- Yooper Service Dogs (YSD)
-- The Superior Alliance for Independent Living (SAIL).
Speakers will be available for a panel discussion featuring questions from the audience. YSD's service dog trainer will be on hand to answer questions for those training their own service dog or just wondering how things work.
There is no charge to attend, but your $5 donation ensures these events and resources are available to Yoopers for years to come (cash or check at the door).
Note: This is not a pet-friendly venue. Trained service animals only.
