So proud of our big boy Elvis for being awarded this year’s Asti’s Compassion Trophy by the Spinone Club of America (SCOA). This award is presented each year “In recognition of the Spinone demonstrating superior performance as a therapy dog”.
We visit three facilities on a regular basis: a hospital rehabilitation center, an assisted living center, and the Idaho State Veterans Home. As a hospice volunteer, Elvis also assists in that capacity as requested.
Elvis is certified through the Intermountain Therapy Animals (ITA), earned his AKC Therapy Dog title (THD) and is working towards his Advanced (ATHD) title. This is a job he thoroughly enjoys and I’d like to thank SCOA and the Awards Committee for recognizing Elvis and the work he does. I’d also like to thank all those who volunteer their time and their pets in this important service.
