In conjunction with 2016 National Assistance Dog Month, PawPADs’ Founder and Executive Director, Linda Ball, and service dog “Victory” visted Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia at the invitation of the U.S. Embassy. They took part in a speaking tour on how assistance dogs can help people with disabilities. While there they met with the Mongolian government, international NGOs, disability related groups, schools, universities and the general public, as well as spending some time with the only animal rescue organization in Ulaanbaatar “Lucky Paws.”
With the support of IIP’s Target of Opportunity Speaker program, PawPADs and the US Embassy Mongolia conducted the first-ever service dog speaker program in Mongolia. It was a heartwarming success!
