What Are Guide, Hearing, and Service Dogs?
In June of 2010 the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation awarded a grant in the amount of $2,000 to the Assistance Dog Club of Puget Sound to be used expressly for the purpose of our Emergency Vet Care Fund available to our members. Funding for this grant is provided by the Hayes Family Fund of the Greater Tacoma Community Foundation. This donation has enabled ADCPS to reinstate the fund used to provide help for assistance dogs belonging to ADCPS members for necessary critical veterinary care.
