Rutgers DogTags Program:
The Rutgers University Office of Veteran and Military Programs and Services, the Office of Disability Services, and the university’s Office of Counseling, Alcohol and other Drug Assistance Program and Psychiatric Services are joining to launch RU DogTags, a program to connect trained service dogs with the student veterans who need them. The dogs will be trained by Merlin’s Kids, a nonprofit organization that trains service dogs. This effort is supported by Friends and Neighbors in Action, a nonprofit organization that assists people suffering from debilitating and chronic diseases. Enterprise, Inc. is co-sponsoring the event, and the company’s representatives will be present to talk about career opportunities.
