September is National Service Dog Month

September is National Service Dog Month

Individuals at the Nebraska State Penitentiary, the Nebraska Correctional Center for Women and the Reception and Treatment Center stood proud, watching their pups graduate as trained service dogs and take their place beside the person who will need their assistance in a variety of ways.

While graduation is an inspiring and emotional day for everyone involved, it’s just the start of the wonderful bonds these service dog teams will build over the years to come!

September is National Service Dog Month and we’re shining a spotlight on Domesti-PUPS, a Lincoln-based organization that has been a fantastic partner with NDCS for many years. Domesti-PUPS make a big difference in the lives of persons with special needs by providing well-trained service dogs, and incarcerated individuals at several NDCS facilities play an important role in making this happen. 

Thank you to the team at Domesti-PUPS for the investment you make in this life-changing program! #BuildYourFuture #ServiceDogs #NationalServiceDogMonth
