Our newest team, our Veteran Carrie has been paired with a lab puppy due to be born in the next couple of weeks. They are sponsored by Jack Henry and Associates through the “One of Us” Campaign and their training is already completely paid for. Thank you to the Jack Henry Team and we look forward to seeing what you name our newest K9 in the program!
