Our pup joins the New York Rangers!
We are thrilled that the New York Rangers have joined us on the path to unlocking life’s potential for children and families affected by autism. Our little hockey pup will accompany puppy raiser Saxon Eastman to Madison Square Garden daily and will be a regular fixture at practices and games. He will receive great socialization experiences and tons of opportunities to practice his skills.
We are profoundly grateful for our partnership with the RangersTown community. We know Ranger and his new teammates will help raise tremendous awareness and support for autism and service dogs. Let's go Rangers!
Join our team:
- Apply for an autism service dog for your child
- Raise a puppy to become a future autism service dog
- Provide a home for autism service dogs while they are in formal training (limited geographic area)
- Care for a future autism service dog temporarily
- Drive future service dogs to/from puppy raisers, veterinary appointments and other needed excursions
- Donate financial resources, goods or services
Ranger was born on January 31st in North Carolina at Project 2 Heal. The nonprofit provides Labrador retrievers to service dog organizations that help children with special needs and wounded warriors of the armed forces. Project 2 Heal’s special dogs possess the superior health and temperament qualities that will empower them to thrive in their future working careers.
Ranger was drafted to New York on April 2nd to begin his BluePath journey. He’s often lovingly referred to as “Rangy” or “Meatball.” He enjoys spending time exploring Manhattan and hanging out with his older “brother,” pet Labrador Vincent. His favorite activity other than eating kibble? Cheering on his blueshirt teammates of course!
