NCL Girls Volunteer at Guide Dog Graduation
On Saturday, February 9 the Guide Dogs of America hosted their Guide Dog graduation for the first time since they renovated their Sylmar campus. Eight beautiful, hardworking dogs graduated this session. Captain, a stalky yellow lab, stole the show with his charm and captain’s hat as he was introduced to his new owner. The girls baked dozens of cookies and served refreshments to all of the guests in attendance, including the families that foster and train the guide dogs from puppies. It is always an emotional ceremony as the dogs change ownership from their loving fosters to their new owners who need them due to their disabilities, to help with daily life tasks. People travel from all over the United States to receive trained dogs for service. The SFV National Charity League is honored to donate their volunteer time annually.
