In celebration of Giving Bark Thursday, JFKIAT partnered with the Guide Dog Foundation to host a puppy class for volunteer puppy raisers at Terminal 4 on July 14. Four future guide dogs in training were introduced to TSA security as well as the busy sights, smells and sounds of T4 during the class. Exposure to these situations provided socialization to the pups so they can become confident guide dogs for passengers who are blind or visually impaired.
This puppy class kicked off a partnership between JFKIAT and the Guide Dog Foundation. Terminal 4 is dedicated to giving back to the community and excited to support the Guide Dog Foundation by providing a unique location for these future guide dogs to train.
