Saturdays with Steve Parker
September 04, 2018 - 12:35 pm

Sandy Sullivan, from the Ridgefield Operation for Animal Rescue also known as R.O.A.R., discusses the organization. What is it? Sullivan also previews an upcoming fundraiser event called "Furry Friends Fall Festival" that will be held on October 21. There will be food trucks, entertainment, kids activities and attendees are strongly encouraged to bring their dogs to the event. How does R.O.A.R. give back to the community? What do their therapy dogs offer to individuals? Finally, Sullivan discusses the "Pets for Vets" program. Veterans are carefully matched with a companion dog, not to be confused with a service dog, to help the individual.
