Aster has found her Furever Home as a Very Important Pet!

As a former police chief, Jim Cessford was familiar with PADS as Delta was the first police department in Canada to use assistance dogs. When he was diagnosed with cancer a year ago, his family applied for a VIP. He describes Aster, a two year old yellow Labrador/golden retriever as a rascal but an intelligent one who knows some 15 commands but it’s her playful personality that his family loves. She lets them know if they are late for a walk and she tells them when she is ready for a swim.

“Aster helped us through difficult times,” says Jim who now has a clean bill of health. “She has brought joy, activity, love, caring and beauty into my family’s lives. We cannot thank PADS enough for introducing Aster into our lives.”
