    Service Dogs Presentation at Public Library


    On Wednesday, March 13th, the City of Santa Maria Public Library will host a presentation from the Service Dog organization, New Life K9s, in Shepard Hall from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. 

    Based in San Luis Obispo, New Life K9s connects veterans or first responders who suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) with highly educated service dogs. New Life K9s also trains select puppies in becoming service dogs. Their service dogs are placed with veterans or first responders free of charge.

    There will be two presenters from New Life K9s to discuss the organization’s work. One of the presenters is a retired first responder with PTSD and a recipient of a New Life K9s service dog, and will share his story.
