AIDAN AND MARSH (Therapy Dog)
Aidan just completed the 11th grade when he received the news that he will be receiving a new therapy dog. He has prior experience with Assistance Dogs; he received his first dog, Jada, ten years ago and she was his first best friend. Aidan's mom, Michele, says, "As Aidan nears adulthood, our priority for him is increasing his independence. We feel a therapy dog plays a big role in that since Aidan will be responsible for his daily care. Aidan thrives when he has responsibilities."
Marsh will be in great hands with Aidan and his family. Michele shares, "Aidan loves helping out and taking care of others. Aidan already says he loves Marsh and we can't wait to see their relationship grow." Marsh was fostered by Maygen O'Hern and inmate trainers Ivan M. and Joseph W.
