Driver Needed…

CALLING ALL DOG LOVERS… 

YCAN is in search of a driver willing to take a Yarmouth woman to visit the Service Dog Project in Ipswich, MA and bring her home. The rider has significant mobility issues due to Parkinsons, and if she qualifies for a service dog (the reason for the trip), it could change her life.

If you love dogs – especially Great Danes – your time at the Project will be full of joy and enrichment. And you’d be doing something remarkable for a neighbor.

The Service Dog Project Open House takes place every Sunday from 12 – 4:00, so there is flexibility in arranging this ride.  This is a large ask, and we understand that.  If you find yourself open to this idea, please contact Leslie Hyde at the YCAN phone 207.838.2261 for further details.

Thank You.
