By Nancy Edwards

Early fall is the perfect time of year to spend an afternoon strolling around the park with your favorite four-legged friend. Why not gather your friends, family and their dogs together for a tail wagging good cause?

Canine Companions for Independence is hosting their annual DogFest Walk ‘n’ Roll on Oct. 5 from 1:30 to 4:30 p.m. to help raise money and awareness for highly trained assistance dogs to people with disabilities, free of charge. Completely accessible for people with disabilities, the event at Billericay Park will host a variety of vendors offering services such as nail clipping and tooth brushing for all dogs that attend the event with their owners.

“This is a nice outing for you and dog come to and see some great vendors providing services,” said Brandt Carter, who serves with Canine Companions of Independence.

Canine Companions is a 501 © (3) non-profit organization that enhances the lives of people with disabilities by providing highly trained assistance dogs and ongoing support to ensure quality partnerships.

1)      Those that assist adults with physical disabilities by performing daily tasks;

2)      Those that alert the deaf and hard of hearing to important sounds;

3)      Those that enhance independence for children and adults with physical, cognitive and developmental disabilities, and

4)      Those that work with a professional in a visitation, education or healthcare setting
