Ready to Serve in 2020

1fur1 newsJust last month, our #1fur1impact to children and seniors with disabilities grew by 57% (to 1,060 people) and we also provided 33% more free-of-charge AAA and AAT sessions (164 sessions to be exact).

However, due to the current COVID-19 virus outbreak we’ve been proactive and suspended ALL of our programs. Visits to hospitals, hospice and assisted living facilities are suspended until May 3rd. In IL, CA, MO and FL we’re suspending all pre-scheduled March and April visits at schools and assisted living facilities. However, in Michigan since the victim canine advocates are government workers, they’ll remain working until the local officials decide otherwise.
