A First Nations NGO in Canada and the Dog School of Israel have joined efforts to provide specialized service dogs as a rehabilitative step for those who served their country, as well as for others living with disabilities.

Winnipeg served as the transit point last weekend as nine trained service dogs were brought from Israel, before moving on to their new homes. 

The organizers expressed their profound thanks to the Air Canada Medical Desk, who seamlessly handled the transportation of the nine travelers as well as their veteran companion. Their support is integral to the success of the program.

Going far beyond companionship, these beautiful dogs are called upon to provide essential assistance to veterans who are disabled and suffering from PTSD and mobility issues. They also are integral to sustaining and improving the mental health of the recipients and enhancing their quality of life, one dog at a time.

MSAR is an independent Non-Government Organization (NGO) that has main offices in Winnipeg and is the only agency of its kind directed by aboriginal elders, advisors, and First Nation leadership. It partners with like-minded agencies to deliver and operate programs and services.

The Dog School of Israel specializes in training disabled and deaf service dogs. At the end of 6 months of training, the school rigorously tests the class before approving their graduation to a placement within the community.

With the addition of trained Service Dogs to their lives, our veterans and people with disabilities will gain independence and help ensure they become active members of their community once again. In the future, TheJ.ca hopes to bring forward features about these placements and the positive impact on our community.

Thank you for choosing TheJ.Ca as your source for Canadian Jewish News.

We do news differently!

Our positioning as a Zionist News Media platform sets us apart from the rest. While other Canadian Jewish media are advocating increasingly biased progressive political and social agendas, TheJ.Ca is providing more and more readers with a welcome alternative and an ideological home.

We revealed the incursion of anti-Israel progressive elements such as IfNotNow into our communities. We have exposed the distorted hateful agenda of the “progressive” left political radicals who brought Linda Sarsour to our cities, and we were first to report on many disturbing incidents of Nazi-based hate towards Jews across Canada.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your HELP!

Our ability to thrive and grow in 2020 and beyond depends on the generosity of committed readers and supporters like you.

Monthly support is a great way to help us sustain our operations. We greatly appreciate any contributions you can make to support Jewish Journalism.
