September is National Dog Service Month!

September is National Dog Service Month!  It is important to recognize the service dogs who dedicate their lives — and sometimes even risk their lives — to help human beings.  They provide companionship, inspire confidence, and live to serve, protect, and assist their handlers.   Guide dogs, seeing eye dogs, service pets, and assistance animals are helping their humans perform tasks, accomplish lifelong goals, embark on adventures, overcome debilitating mental illnesses, and safeguard military bases across the country and around the world.  Meet Lucy, she is a resident at Bartels Nursing Home here in Waverly.  She serves residents at Bartels in various ways, including providing companionship and love.  We are thankful for her service to our community!
