Gone To The Dogs

For the third semester, teams of students are helping socialize six potential service dogs through 4 Paws for Ability. The program on campus began in spring 2015 when graduate student Amanda Prater brought the campus’ first service dog, Crash, to the University for training. “[B]eing involved with 4 Paws for Ability is a great way for UD students to get involved with their community, and the campus is also a great environment for the dogs to be socialized in,” Prater ’16 said. The nonprofit raises, trains and places service dogs with children worldwide who have disabilities.
