Kent Lions Visit Pilot Dog Program

Group has sponsored 58 dogs for Pilot Dogs of Ohio

Members of the Kent Lions Club recently visited Columbus to learn how a pilot dog is trained to assist the blind.

The Kent Lions, who have a history of supporting sight-related programs, have sponsored 58 dogs for Pilot Dogs of Ohio via scholarships totaling more than $250,000.

Jeff Coffee, a member of the Kent Lions, said members also were given the opportunity to let a guide dog lead them through downtown Columbus.

"Let me tell you, it was an enlightening experience," Coffee said.

Their should be groups like this to train dogs for people who need psychiatric service dogs. This would be a really helpful area that would help a lot of people.
