Service Dog Inc.’s biggest fundraiser of the year is Saturday, March 5.  The organization rescues dogs from shelters and trains them to become service dogs for those with disabilities. The current goal is $100,000; so far over $67,000 has been raised.

The founder and president of Service Dog Inc., Sheri Soltes, joined us in the KXAN studio to preview the event.

The theme for this year is Texas Pride; so cowboy hats and any other Lone Star gear is welcome.
