With Easter just around the corner, kids are looking forward to when the Easter Bunny stops by and hides a lot of eggs and chocolate around the house. But what about man’s best friend?
National Service Dogs are hosting an Easter Egg Hunt at Plunkett Estates on March 25th at 11:00am for your furry friend. Any dog is able to participate in the hunt, and there is a fee to register. You can register online, or at 9:30am on March 25th at Plunkett Estates.
All of the money raised from the Easter Egg Hunt goes towards the organization. NSD is a charity that receives no government funding, so they rely on donations.
The Easter Egg Hunt is held in 8 cities across Ontario, and began 19 years ago in Oakville.
National Service Dogs are used to help children with autism, and first responders and anyone suffering from Post Traumatic Distress.
Another service dog that is heavily trained is the Canine Unit with the London Police Force. These dogs are trained for an entirely different purpose – to search for missing persons, find evidence, and many more tasks that help the Police.
