ECAD, Educated Canines Assisting with Disabilities
September 10, 2010
ECAD is a wonderful organization. Everyone involved is there because they really care and are willing to do whatever is needed to make the organization succeed. Dogs receive excellent training and lots of love and attention so they can one day help someone with physical, social or emotional difficulties. They are trained by at-risk teens who learn dog training as a skill, but more importantly, they learn confidence, consistency and love. Seeing the pride on the faces of the kids is only surpassed by the client's expression of joy on graduation day. After rigorous training, the client feels more capable and independent as they go out into the world with their new best friend. I cry at every graduation when I see it come together for everyone involved.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my everyday life. They are an inspiration that if you really believe in something and are willing to work hard, you can make a difference.
