Reece is being raised and trained to provide life-changing independence to someone with a physical disability other than visual impairment or to work with a professional such as a teacher, psychologist or victim services worker to help support a healthy community.

It truly takes a village to raise a puppy, and you can be part of Reece’s village and receive monthly updates about her — donations raised through this page support the care and training of healthy, happy puppies. Help support Reece today.

Reece was named after Terry Reece, a retired American Airlines staff member who lives in Dallas, Texas.  Terry volunteered with the Puppies in Flight program and transported numerous dogs for PADS.  Terry handled most of our transports for the last seven years and was always eager to fly up to Vancouver to help us out (and to indulge in his favourite Asian foods).  Terry has became a true friend of PADS and we value his support and devotion to our school and so many other ADI schools in North America.
