Benny the Emotional Support Dog and Tyler Phillips, USMC graduated our program on March 27, 2020. They are enjoying many adventures together, and we are so thankful Tyler has provided Benny such an exciting life, and that Benny has provided Tyler the emotional support he deserves post-service.

Benny’s journey through our program, from adoption at Labs and More Rescue out of San Diego, CA to his graduation with Tyler, was generously sponsored by The Thursday Club Juniors.
