Sam finds the dogs who he trains as service dogs for these disabled Veteran’s from shelters and rescue organizations.

Sam will share his experiences and the work he does with these special dogs and disabled military Veteran’s.  He will be accompanied by one of these service dogs during his talk.

We will also be sharing a video during our program of some of the special animals cared for at Prairie’s Edge Humane Society as well as photos submitted by adopters of our alumni!
