This October 7-29, Petco is partnering with Natural Balance Pet Foods to support working, service and therapy animals.
Dakota and Jessica’s Story
Jessica knew that it was time to begin looking for a service dog to assist with her fainting episodes and seizures when she received an ultimatum from her doctor after her sixth concussion in a year. She reached out to Refurbished Pets of Southern Michigan and was matched with Dakota.
Dakota and Jessica were perfect for each other. On their second day together, Dakota alerted Jessica before she fainted. The duo has been inseparable ever since!
Since they were paired, they have been on trips across the country together. Jessica has experienced seizures, but Dakota has kept her safe by alerting her before one begins.
This is why Petco is supporting this cause.
Animals like Dakota provide support, safety and comfort to people across the nation. That’s why we’re honoring these heroes from October 7-29.
