Calling All Dog Lovers! Join us for a lecture and general discussion about our favorite companions. The topics will include choosing a dog for your lifestyle (especially seniors), potential issues, breed-specific insights and dog training.  Learn about the differences between therapy and service dogs as well as what goes on behind the scenes in animal shelters.

There will be plenty of time for questions and answers.
