PSA Helps Veteran Receive a Service Dog Through 4 Paws for Ability

Seeing a family who has been struggling receive the gift of support in the form of a service dog was an experience Ashley Gardner, Learning and Development Specialist for PSA, won’t soon forget.

PSA donated $1,000 to help a local veteran receive a service dog from 4 Paws for Ability. The organization, based near Dayton, Ohio, trains dogs for children with disabilities and veterans in need.

Ashley was able to attend the graduation ceremony where Christopher Ruwaldt, a United States Air Force veteran who suffers from PTSD and the veteran PSA sponsored, received Aero. Aero was one of 10 dogs presented to families that day.

“I could tell how much of a difference 4 Paws for Ability was making in each family member’s life,” said Ashley. “The event brought together these people and made them a community through the sharing their experiences and journeys that brought them to that special day.”

 PSA has been actively involved with the 4 Paws for Ability organization through events and volunteer support from members of the recruiting team.
