PAWS With A Cause
January 7, 2021
Pebble Hill Plantation and the Thomas County Public Library are pleased to announce the upcoming Enlightening Bites program, “PAWS With a Cause,” on Friday, January 8, 2021 at noon in the Flipper Room of the Library. The program is being presented by Jeri Anderson, field representative.
Anderson is recently retired from the City of Monticello, Florida. Her days are now devoted to running a boarding and dog training business from her home. In addition, she is a field representative for PAWS With a Cause and has worked for PAWS for 15 years.
PAWS is a national non-profit organization that places service dogs with individuals who need assistance. The mission of PAWS is to enhance the independence and quality of life for people with disabilities nationally, through custom-trained Assistance Dogs. PAWS increases awareness of the rights and roles of Assistance Dog Teams through education and advocacy.
Her program will focus on how service dogs assist people, the process for applicants who need an assistance dog, and the process of raising puppies in foster homes until they are ready for training.
The Enlightening Bites Lecture Series is co-sponsored by Pebble Hill Plantation and the Thomas County Public Library. Attendees are invited to bring their lunch. Drinks are provided. The series is free and open to the public.
