America's VetDogs to close out Petfood
Forum 2014
Wells Jones, CEO of America's VetDogs,
will be the closing keynote speaker for Petfood
Forum 2014 on April 2, explaining the organization's origins and how it selects, trains,
feeds, cares for and provides service dogs to
military veterans. VetDogs is part of the Guide
Dog Foundation, which was founded after
World War II to train and provide guide dogs
for blinded veterans, a mission that eventually
expanded to helping civilians. After the Iraq
and Afghanistan wars, the organization saw
a need to provide service dogs, too, that help
their human partners in many ways in their
daily lives. Some of these human-dog partnerships will accompany Jones and visit with
Petfood Forum participants.
