K9s For Kids Trains Service Dogs for Special Needs Children
By Alabama News Network


Some very special dogs are getting brand new homes today with some very special local children.

The K-9s for Kids program held its annual graduation ceremony right here in Montgomery.

Six families received a trained dog to help children with special needs.

The dogs go through intense training for about two years where they are trained by prison inmates under the supervision of K-9s for kids.

Each dog is specifically trained to assist children with a variety of special needs including juvenile diabetes, brain injury, and spina bifida.
