Service Dogs Helping People

Service Dogs Helping People

Wilmington, NC – Seeing Eye dogs have helped lead the blind since World War I, when they were first used to guide blind soldiers. Today, dogs are being trained to help people with a disability do laundry and pay bills. These dogs are called service dogs. And in WHQR's series looking at area non-profits, Catherine Welch highlights a Wilmington organization that trains puppies to be the eyes and hands of their disabled partners.
