Canine Companions Service Dog Devon is expertly trained to assist retired USMC
Explosive Ordnance Specialist Charlie Linville with everyday tasks, including retrieving his prosthesis, carrying items and much more. Devon, like all Canine Companions service dogs, was provided free of charge.
"On behalf of the American Battle Monuments Commission, I would like to express my gratitude to K9s Serving Vets (and specifically to Ms. Kira Clark) for helping me understand US Law and veteran sensitivities regarding Service Animals in public spaces. I was working with a small team to develop our policy for how to deal with animals in our overseas American Military Cemeteries, and Kira gave some very expert advice that framed the way we addressed the problem of "emotional support animals" vs "service animals." As a veteran myself, I'm honored to call Kira a friend and colleague, and I am especially grateful that she has dedicated herself to bettering the lives of our nation's heroes. Bravo Kira - Keep it up!! "
