FOLBA Annual Membership Meeting
JOIN US for our Annual Membership Meeting June 14th at the Long Beach Playhouse, 5021 Anaheim Street.
Yes, it has been 29 wonderful years that we have been caring for pets in the Long Beach and Signal Hill communities. The meeting will start at 6:30 pm. There will be coffee and cookies!
Our guest for the evening will be Canines Companions for Independence (CCI). Founded in 1975, CCI is a non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships.
The assistance dogs they breed, raise and train aren’t just the ears, hands and legs of their human partners. They’re also goodwill ambassadors and often, their best friends. They open up new opportunities and new possibilities, and spread incredible joy. CCI unites people with dogs in a powerful program that leads to greater independence and confidence.
Along with an overview of their programs, a CCI volunteer will provide a demonstration and/or meet and greet with a “puppy in program”. These puppies are on the path to becoming a future assistance dog for a person with a disability!
