As part of our commitment to giving back to the local community and our continued partnership with the Guide Dog Foundation, JFKIAT hosted another puppy class for volunteer puppy raisers at the Retail Hall in Terminal 4 on March 15. During the class, 17 future guide dogs in training were introduced to TSA security, practiced boarding a flight, encountered busy sights, and experienced smells and sounds of an airport.
By providing a unique location and experience for these future guide dogs to train in, the pups are exposed to these situations to provide them with socialization so they can become confident guide dogs for someone who is blind or visually impaired. We are honored to continue this partnership with such an impactful organization.
