Dogs make great companions as pets, but can go beyond that by providing a wide range of assistance as service animals to those who are disabled. They can help individuals with visual and hearing impairments, mobility problems, diabetes, seizure disorder and mental illnesses. This not only increases independence, but also creates loving companionships between the dogs and those who use them.

Last week, the Kentucky Supreme Court agreed to hear a lawsuit brought by AG Beshear against Governor Bevin.
