An introduction to the world of service animals.

Chapter 58 of Impact centers primarily around Steven's introduction to the world of service animals. People who have disabilities rely on service animals for all aspects of daily living, from dressing and bathing to assistance retrieving items and support while tranferring, pivoting and walking. Deb Bauer from Canine Partners for Life provided a wealth of information, as did an article by Joan Froling entitled Assistance Dog Tasks which explains in great detail the various tasks a service dog can perform.
Joan's article can be found here: As a way of thanking Deb and K94life, I ask that you check out the following information: Canine Partners for Life has been selected as a finalist in the Toyota 100 Cars for Good program.
