Kathleen & Rani
Kathleen and Rani were partnered in 2016. Kathleen reports that Rani is doing great! She likes Kathleen's new scooter. When she hears something drop, whether it is one of Kathleen's canes or a tool at work, she comes running to retrieve it. She even carries things like the TV remote back and forth.
For fun, Kathleen and Rani are starting to train for AKC Rally and Obedience trials - both are enjoying that as well.
Our volunteer spotlight shines on Sherrie
Sherrie writes, "
I have volunteered for Circle Tail for a few years now, fostering, helping at the kennel, and planning and participating in fundraisers. My experience has been wonderful. Playing and working with the wonderful dogs is so great, and raising much needed funds to support the mission is very satisfying. Meeting the other terrific volunteers, board members, and staff, as well as Marlys has given me an understanding of the need for service dogs and the tremendous amount of dedication and work it takes to train a dog to help people.
I first learned of Circle Tail when a volunteer brought a German shepherd to my Cincinnati Rotary meeting to do a presentation. I thought about Circle Tail for several years and then decided to jump in. The day I decided, I drove around for about 2 hours trying to find the location in Pleasant Plain! When I arrived, several men were building fences, and one of them, board member Dean, offered to show me around.
I was convinced immediately that this is an organization I wanted to help."
Circle Tail's New Ambassador
Irish Wolfhound Gage,
born in March 2017
Many of you may remember Mokie, Mayor of Circle Tail. Gage is following in some pretty big paw steps, but we think he will make an excellent ambassador for Circle Tail!
