St.John's Ambulance Therapy Dogs


We had our first visit from Lecia and boy was she a hit! We had families in to read to her and she couldn't have been happier. She actually looks at the books!! We had so much fun and are happy to share that Leica and her trainer will come in once a month to visit. So if you would like to read to a wonderful, gentle, sweet dog named Leica, come into Stittsville branch and register in person.
