McGee works for NEADS   NEADS National Education for Assistance Dog Services   since 1976 NEADS is a national non-profit organization in Princeton, MA  that trains highly-skilled dogs to assist people who are deaf, hearing impaired or physically disabled in leading more independent lives.  These Assistance Dogs become an extension of their owners and bring security, freedom, independence and relief from social isolation to their human partners. NEADS, one of the oldest and largest programs of it's kind, was the first to use facility- based training to develop a strong working relationship between the student and his dog.  Since 1976, NEADS has trained over 725 working dogs for service across the United States. Many were homeless dogs rescued from animal shelters. NEADS has trained hearing dogs to respond to sounds for a person who cannot hear.  Service dogs pick up dropped articles, retrieve, turn on/off light switches, pull wheelchairs.  NEADS has recently applied the service dog concept to the classroom environment.  Service dogs' skills are integrated into the curriculum so that the dog becomes teacher, motivator, or reward for children with physical, emotional or developmental disabilities. McGee was donated to NEADS by Debbie Wachter Countryside Doodles in West Virginia  JOIN THE NEADS VOLUNTEER PUPPY PROGRAM ….donate veterinary services… Veterinarians donate medical services to a puppy in their local area through its all-important first year. …donate well-bred puppies… Breeders donate puppies from their litters to be fostered, then trained at the kennel for service. …donate time and love… Spend the first year of a puppy's life getting him ready for life as a service dog. Pups On Parole NEADS requires volunteers to spend time with and socialize NEADS' puppies being raised by prison inmates in several Massachusetts correctional institutions.  This fun adventure includes taking the dogs for walks, bringing them to town and to malls, restaurants and anywhere there are other people or dogs.
