Pet Puppies This Friday FTK

For $2 you can pet those adorable labrador puppies that have been scurrying around campus all semester. The best part? It’s FTK.

The Susquehanna Service Dogs will be available to pet on the HUB lawn from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday. The fundraiser will go towards Alpha Kappa Psi’s THON efforts.

Currently there are ten service dogs that are being raised by students or community members. According to Dr. Nancy Dreschel, the group’s on-campus advisor, each puppy will remain with their raiser until they turn 18 months old. Then, the dogs are sent to SSD’s headquarters in Grantville for further evaluation and training.

Outside of training, the puppies love attention and playing around. “When they are not walking around campus or training they are just normal dogs,” Yvette Gramignano said, one of the service dog trainers.
