Benny is a cattle dog mix adopted from Labs and More Rescue here in San Diego. He is super smart, eager to work, and has a really fun personality. We are so glad that he found his way to our program, and we can’t wait to see the joy he brings to a veteran one day!
Benny’s adoption, care, housing and placement was generously donated by The Thursday Club Juniors. Along with their contribution to our new training facility for these amazing service dogs in training, the Thursday Club Juniors also sponsored our Emotional Support Dog graduate, Thursday, through our program.
