Putnam Service Dogs will celebrate the grand opening of its new residential training center Friday, Nov 3, from 5 to 6:30 p.m., at 2453 Route 6, Brewster (the old Houlihan Lawrence office).
The event will feature light refreshments and offer attendees a chance to join in celebrating this achievement and meet some of the service dog teams and pups in training. Town officials and members of the Brewster and Mahopac Carmel chambers of commerce will participate in the ribbon-cutting ceremony.
This training center will help the organization quadruple its output of service dogs. Donors can leave a lasting legacy with a plaque prominently displayed at the center, honoring a special person or pet. Plaques start at $125. More information is available at www.putnamservicedogs.org.
Founded in 2016, Putnam Service Dogs trains carefully selected mixed-breed rescue dogs as free service dogs for people with physical disabilities other than blindness, or veterans. It is a 501(c)3, and an Accredited BBB and Platinum Candid nonprofit.
Founder Nancy Teague says the organization exists to create happiness by changing the lives of both the dogs they adopt and the dogs’ recipients. Rescue groups and veterinarian partners hold Putnam Service Dogs in high regard because it champions its dogs in their training and care.
