COPE Service Dogs is a unique organization that raises and trains service dogs primarily for people with mobility disabilities. We got to speak with them this week about Daisy, Hospice Simcoe’s service dog, who they trained!

On our previous podcast, we spoke with Lynda Murtha, Manager Fund Development for Hospice Simcoe, and foster mom of Daisy! Daisy is the first facility dog to be placed in a hospice in Ontario. This week, we had the pleasure of speaking with Peggy Lee, Program Director for COPE Service Dogs, who trained Daisy.

Listen in to hear all about the training process, and how Daisy was prepared for her role.

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift

I stand behind SPCA with my monthly gift. I am so happy there are folks like you to care for those who can’t help themselves.  My family and I have had animals all our lives and know what a comfort they are.  Thank you SPCA.
