| SC Living | December 13, 2014

Heroes 848 2New Leash on Life’s Lend a Paw program sent a special delegation and their two therapy dogs, Maverick and Bailey, to visit an extraordinary Santa Clarita family: the Hudgins. The following is an excerpt from a “thank you” note New Leash on Life received from Heather Hudgins after heroes Sarah Jane and Chantal Chelin brought therapy dogs to work with her children.

We just wanted to share some of the pictures from our wonderful visit from Bailey and Maverick. Sarah Jane and Chantal were so gracious with their Hereos 848 3time, and have such an amazing gift handling these beautiful dogs. It was such a blessing to our family to have this experience. It was the most engaged and happy we have seen our boys in a LONG time. It was the perfect distraction from their day-to-day challenges. It is amazing to see the connection that animals can make.

New Leash On Life has extraordinary volunteers, like Sarah Jane and Chantal. The healing power of the dogs and the bravery of families like the Hudgins combine to create improvements in the welfare of many. Contact New Leash on Life through the website: NLOL.org.
