Forever Curious Shares Service Dog Information

An interesting non-profit, Forever, reached out to me after hearing some of the radio shows I’ve done about various types of service dogs, in particular service dog organizations that provide dogs for children with autism, diabetes and other special needs.

Forever Curious is an unusual non-profit, a self-proclaimed “labor of love” by a group of volunteer librarians and educators seeking to curate information online. A member of their group has a special needs child who benefits from a family assistance dog, who has become an indispensable part of the child’s treatment, so they are attuned to service and assistance dogs. is an innovative and little-known group whose work can be of use to educators and students everywhere, so I’m delighted to bring them to everyone’s attention. They curate educational resources and lesson plans online for people of all ages, from preschool through college and adulthood. “seeks to foster a love of lifelong learning that has kept all of us forever curious.”

Some of the links that their group looked up regarding assistance dogs were Autism Service Dogs of America, Service Dogs for America in North Dakota and VA Benefits for Service Dogs.

It’s so nice when people doing good connect with other people doing their own flavor of good. I hope these links will be of value to those of you for whom an assistance dog can be life-changing, not just life-enhancing as our companion dogs are for the “rest” of us.
