Service Dogs Visit Wheels O' Time Museum

Wheels O' Time Museum

When you visit, you may find yourself walking alongside a service dog and handler! The lights, sounds, and various exhibit types will provide a unique training opportunity for the service dogs and service dogs in training of Paws Giving Independence.

The objective of PGI is to train service dogs to assist people with a variety of different disabilities while providing support to encourage independence. PGI educates the public to the benefits of Service Dogs and encourages animal rescue by obtaining many of their animals from shelters and rescue groups. Paws Giving Independence provides quality service dogs free of charge to adults and children. It is a fully volunteer-run organization.

Some of the dogs visiting the museum may be on “furlough” from PGI’s training program at Logan Correctional Center. Click here to watch a news feature about a special service dog who was trained through that program.

Regular admission rates apply.
