Our C.A.T. Dogs Make a Difference at Ann Storck Center!

We mourn the loss of a wonderful C.A.T. Dog

It is with a heavy heart that I announce that Earl, Certified C.A.T. Dog, crossed over Rainbow Bridge. Earl was a wonderful and fun loving dog that brought a tremendous amount of joy to everyone that he met. Earl encouraged laughter and fun when he entered a room. His favorite thing to do was to sit on the sofa, legs crossed, and socialize with the residents of the facilities that he visited.

Earl will be sorely missed and our heart goes out to his owners Helene and Sharon.
