2008 Wilmington Holiday Parade

Carolina Canines for Service was proud to participate in this years Wilmington Holiday Parade! The event was held on December 7th, 2008 in the evening hours. It was a beautiful site to see all the community gather around to watch the local organizations celebrate the holiday season.

We were lucky to be joined by a few of the marines that work so closely with our service dogs in the Carolina Canines for Veterans program. The guys brought three of the dogs from the brig down to show their support of the wonderful program. This is the first of many years to come that the Carolina Canines for Veterans has been in existence to participate in the parade. Thanks again guys!

Our wonderful trainer and some of our amazing foster puppy parents also came out to show their support. Donna Sweetman with advanced dog Judah and service dog in training Tobias were all set for the parade in their holiday gear. Our programs couldn't exist without these amazing people and all the support that they give.

Also joining CCFS for the chilly evening to celebrate the holidays were a few of our Animal Assisted Therapy Teams. These teams go into local hospitals, nursing homes, and school and work to brighten someones day just a bit. As you can see Joshua is ready to make anyone smile with his antlers!

Thanks again to everyone who participated in this years' event and to everyone else who helps make what we do possible!
