Dismas Charities Clarksburg Residents Volunteer To Re-Build Service Dog Kennel

When Clarksburg Director Nita Schoonover was asked for help at a local service dog training facility after a storm caused considerable damage, she
had no trouble finding resident volunteers. Schoonover explained that counselors actually have a waiting list of residents wanting to work with local community partner, K9s to Furkids. K9s trains service dogs and donates them to veterans and low-income families who cannot afford the customary costs involved with obtaining a service dog. The non-profit also rescues dogs under nine months old to determine their viability for service dog training or placement as a family pet. In early fall, a microburst storm damaged K9s toFurKids flattening several kennels. “Our residents responded with enthusiasm at the prospect of spending time … with the dogs,” the Director said.
