Many of you have met Sita and read about her on Facebook. Several of you have read my recent book Paw prints on my soul: Lessons of a service dog. You therefore know how this amazing dog opened up a whole new world to me of sounds I never knew were out there and how she keeps me safe.
I received Sita from a wonderful agency called Circle Tail near Cincinnati. For over 20 years under the direction of the great Dog Whisperer, Marlys Staley, this agency has managed to partner people with mobility issues, hearing problems and diabetes and other physical problems with the perfect dog companion for them. Presently they are breeding and whelping dogs on the grounds and need your help.
Circle Tail would like to expand their services further north. They have several adorable and engaging puppies that need to be socialized and trained. Basic training is done by women handlers in two prisons, but the dogs need to learn how to interact with families and socially. They are looking for foster parents to take the dogs. You are allowed two other dogs, cats and children. You would have to travel some to Circle Tail, but much of the training would be done in the northeast area. The dogs are between the ages of 6 months to two years. Another person, Kim Wallick, who has a daughter with mobility issues and received a wonderful dog from Circle Tail, has agreed along with me to help out locally when needed. Veterinarian bills and dog food costs will be covered.
If you are interested at all, please review the information and FAQ’s about fostering on the Circle Tail website at: http://www.circletail.org/index.php?page=foster-a-dog-pup
Kim and I also have brochures we can deliver or mail to you. Contact us on Facebook. Thank you for helping others as we have been helped.
