The coronavirus pandemic has modified the lives of everybody and with no stone unturned within the virus’ unforgiving path, even the lives of future service puppies had been impacted.
As a result of pandemic limiting industrial flights, non-profit group Canine Companions, which is devoted to offering service canine to individuals who have disabilities, confronted challenges in transporting their puppies to their volunteer trainers.
That’s when personal pilots stepped as much as the plate to assist the group and puppies, themselves.
Amongst these volunteer pilots will likely be 21-year-old San Jose resident Owen Leipelt, who will transport the lovable canine cargo to Carlsbad on Saturday. No stranger to service canine, Leipelt’s dad and mom have been concerned with Canine Companions as pet raisers since 1997 and he, himself, has helped prepare the puppies for his or her future service.
Leipelt is scheduled to reach on the Carlsbad Jet Middle at roughly 3 p.m. from the Sonoma Jet Middle in Santa Rosa. After their arrival, the puppies will likely be united with their volunteer raisers who will prepare them on the mandatory expertise they’ll should be a service canine.
