I’m excited to share this article from the North Hills Journal in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania about PAWS for Empowerment expanding its reach

Crisis Center North Working with PVSEC, Verizon to Expand Paws for Empowerment Program

“Crisis Center North is partnering with Verizon Wireless and the Pittsburgh Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center (PVSEC) to expand its innovative Paws for Empowerment program.”

In 2016, the program’s Canine Advocacy Advisory Board was formed with leaders in the fields of victim services and canine-assisted therapy to provide expert resources and enhanced awareness. Dora has served as a Member of the Advisory Board since its formation. If you care to support either Paws for Empowerment or Crisis Center North, please click on the program of your choice below. All donations are gratefully welcomed.

My thanks to Jennifer Monahan for such a great article, and to Eliza Lowther Hadley for allowing me to share in this article the photo of me and Pinch!

All peace to each one of you.
