Beaufort needs more certified therapy dogs!
Beaufort Chapter 229 of Therapy Dogs International will host a therapy dog test at 10 a.m. Saturday, March 23, at BayView Manor LLC, 11 S. Todd Dr. in Beaufort. Fee for the test is $10.
Therapy dog and handler teams visit assisted living and nursing homes to bring emotional support to residents. They also participate in the "Tail-Waggin' Tutor" program, helping children with their reading skills, at local elementary schools and the YMCA. For information on TDI and on what is included in the test, visit the TDI website at www.tdi-dog.org. Only dogs who are being tested should attend this event.
Space in the test is limited, and advance registration with payment is required. For more information or to register, call Chapter 229 Director Dick Hoagland at 843-522-2073.
