The United States Service Dog Registry is on Superman's resource list

We've been recommended by a lot of organizations, but this one makes us the happiest. We just found out today we're included on the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation Paralysis Resource Center List. The foundation promotes the health and well-being of people living with a spinal cord injury, mobility impairment and paralysis by providing comprehensive information, resources and referral services.

You can download a copy of the PDF from here.

Get a free eye exam for your service dog

Here's some great news. The American College of Veterinary Ophthalmologists (ACVO) is going to be giving free eye exams to documented working dogs durring the week of May 3-9, 2009. Over 180 board certified veterinary ophthalmologists are going to donate their time and services.

The program is sponsored by Hills Pet Nutrition, KONG Veterinary Products (yep, KONG, you know, the rubber things you fill with peanut butter) and OptiGen, a company that helps provide genetic DNA based diagnoses and information about inherited diseases of dogs.

Note: Yes, we know that they are using the term "Service Dogs" incorrectly and we've notified the ACVO. We're also thrilled that they are offering this generous and amazing service. Please pass this information along!

Tweet! The United States Service Dog Registry is now on Twitter

We're happy to announce that the United States Service Dog Registry is on Twitter! We're going to be Tweeting service and assistance dog news from around the world as well as information about ourselves. We hope you add us to your mobile device or your computer.

New to Twitter? We recommend using Firefox and the Twitterfox addon (just visit Firefox and search for Twitterfox). We like it because it adds a small "t" to the bottom of your browser and displays Tweets in an easy and out-of-the way place.
