We had a great time this past weekend in St. Augustine with our good friends at Patriot Service Dogs. We got to meet our two Old Town Trolley sponsored puppies, Dudley, a black Labrador retriever and Diego a golden retriever. They got to do meet and greets with out guests and take a tour or two! After their training is complete Dudley and Diego will make fabulous service companions for a wounded veteran returning from war.
It’s that time a year again when we team up with Patriot Service Dogs, a wonderful group based out of Jacksonville, FL, that provides assistance dogs to returning war veterans. Last year Old Town Trolley Tours raised enough money to sponsor two adorable and smart puppies, Diego, a golden retriever and Dudley at Labrador retriever. We are excited to be hosting both of these dogs, with their handlers at Old Town Trolley Tours of St. Augustine on Veteran’s Day. In addition we will have another Patriot Service Dog, Legion, a golden retriever, at Old Town Trolley Tours of Boston on Sunday. All of the dogs will do meet and greets and take tours!
We will again be donating $1 for every ticket purchased to Patriot Service Dogs so they can continue doing the great work that they do. We hope to see everyone out on the trolley tomorrow!
