This month marked the graduation ceremony of two of our dogs, Toby and Sonny, who are going on to become service dogs!
In a newsletter produced by the CTF team, some of the members shared memories and heartfelt words before passing on the graduates to their veterans.
"Sonny's given me the chance to be a parent: to be his dad, his mom, and friend. He's helped me understand that there is hope for me outside of prison."
"Both of these dogs have touched my life in their own way. Toby has a way of looking at you and making you smile, and his hugs are unbeatable."
"I know I was supposed to show Sonny how to have confidence, but he's given me confidence...with Sonny I opened up more and he taught me how to show emotion to help him."
