AG Office Hosts “Dogs at Your Desk Day”
BOSTON – The Office of Attorney General Martha Coakley hosted a “Dogs at Your Desk Day” on Monday. The event supports the National Education for Assistance Dog Services (NEAD) and their Canines for Combat Veterans program, which provides service dogs to wounded veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
NEADS trains rescued dogs and donated puppies to assist people who are deaf or physically disabled in leading more independent lives. As part of the training process, the puppies visit other environments to be further socialized and acclimatized.
