Young Alaskan begins a cause for paws
Chris Brenner is a life long Juneau resident that is embarking on an adventure to raise funds for an organization called 4 Paws for Ability.

4 Paws for Ability is an organization that believes in taking the 'dis' out of disAbility and is committed to the training of service dogs to meet the specific needs of the dog's future companion.

Over the several months Chris and his mother, Robin, will be fundraising for 4 Paws for Ability for the training of service dogs, one of which will be trained specifically to support and accompany Chris safely in his community.

This effort is not only for Chris to receive his needed service dog but is an opportunity for many to learn more about the value of services dogs, the committed mission to remove the 'dis' out of disAbility and for our community to embrace a noble cause for paws.

For more information about 4 Paws for Ability, all are welcome to contact Karen Shirk at (937) 374-0385 or or visit For information about local fundraising opportunities please feel free to contact Chris or Robin at the numbers listed above.
