This will be CCBTR’s 2nd year at the pet expo and we do hope you will join us. We need volunteers to make this event a huge success for the dogs!
Barbara Raab is one of those people who turned a heartbreaking experience, the death of her beloved dog Monty, into a positive experience for hundreds of people and dogs. Barbara opened Monty’s home which provides service to human and canine alike.
For pet owners losing a dog is losing a family member, dogs provide love and comfort that can’t be equaled. Volunteers with the Rainbow Bridge Journey services help people through pet illness, end of life issues and the grieving process.
In 2008 Monty’s home started Pawsitive Partners Prison Program the first companion dog prison training program in Southeastern North Carolina. Prisoners and shelter dogs alike are screened for the program, through different screening methods I assure you. The prisoners are not evaluated for food and toy aggression. The dogs then live at the prison and receive training daily using only positive reinforcement. This program has proven many times over to be hugely beneficial to both human and canine alike who may have felt that they were thrown away. After graduation the dogs are available for adoption.
