KAANAPALI – Melodie Ulman, founder of Caring K9s Maui, will be the speaker at the Rotary Club of Lahaina Sunset on Tuesday, Nov. 20th. The meeting will be held at the Royal Ocean Terrace Restaurant at the Royal Lahaina Resort. Meeting time is from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.

Caring K9s Therapy Dogs, Maui exists to improve the quality of life for people here through therapy dog visits (both comfort visits and specific animal-assisted therapy), Reading Education Assistance Dogs programs for children and animal care education.

Ulman, first discovered the magic of animal therapy in 1999. After undergoing training and evaluation, she embarked on volunteer animal-assisted therapy work in the Lake Tahoe area with her rescue mastiff, Shasta.

She saw how just a few minutes with a therapy dog could make a big difference to someone’s well-being, and she knew then she had found her calling in life.

She and her staff of trained volunteers are seeking interested West Maui dog owners to expand services to West Maui. Interested dog owners are invited to attend this meeting to learn more about how to be part of this

special program.
