We recently completed the third KOGS (Kids and Dogs) training session in Santa Ana. Roger and Jeff, at YDT, continue to be great with the teenagers and the kids have benefited tremendously from having positive male role models in their lives. One of our young men worked with Denver for the entire session and it was amazing to watch the two of them together. Another teen had the chance to practice being assertive in a positive way and Roger offered him his first part time job after the promotion. As you can see, the KOGS program and our dogs have made a tremendous impact on the lives of some high risk teenagers. Thank you to all our volunteers for your time and support with this fantastic program.
