Framingham Co-Sponsors Training for Service Dog 'Harris'

The Rotary Club of Framingham is co-sponsoring the training of a service dog that club members have named “Harris”—in honor of Paul Harris, the founder of Rotary International. The 18-to-24-month training is certified by NEADS, the National Education for Assistance Dog Services (also known as Dogs for Deaf and Disabled Americans), through the Prison-Pup-Partnership at the Massachusetts Correctional Institution in Framingham. Select prisoners are helping to train Harris under MCI-Framingham supervisors.
