Thank you for being a Matrix Orbital Customer, we would like to share with you our annoucement of a new program we have recently become involved in, please take a few minutes to read our attached announcement.
On June 9, 2009 the Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (PADS) welcomed three new puppies, (Galaxy, Orion and Orbital) born to PADS dogs Lola and Beau.
Matrix Orbital is proud to announce our sponsorship of 'Orbital'; a male yellow lab, nicked-named 'Orbie'. Our contribution will aid in general accumulative costs, first year training costs, equipment, microchips and staff training.
PADS is an organization that works to raise assistance dogs, trained to aid those facing the challenges of hearing or physical disabilities. PADS is located in Burnaby, British Columbia and services the provinces of B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. This non-profit organization relies entirely on fundraising, grants and donations to finance the care and training of its assistance dogs.
Orbie will be raised in Calgary, Alberta by trainer Miranda Turenne. During advanced training, from the age of 16 to 24 months, the areas in which
Orbital excels will determine what kind of assistance dog he will become. As either a Service Dog (specializing as a brace dog, mobility dog or pulling dog) or Facility Therapy Dog, the ultimate goal is for Orbie to assist those with disabilities
lead a more adaptive and enriched life.
