    Ready to Get Back to Work

    Chester has been a certified therapy dog since 2008 and provided more than 130 hours of service to the survivors of the Aurora, CO theater shooting. Unfortunately, Chester had to take a break from his therapy work when he slipped a disk due to a spinal infection. His grant from the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation helped cover the cost of MRI’s, x-rays, medication, and physical therapy.

    Kateri Nelson, Chester’s mom, says, “He’s doing well and his last x-rays showed progress. He’s now allowed to go out on two 10-minute walks a day!”

    Chester just isn’t ready to retire from his career as a therapy dog, and the Bow Wow Buddies Foundation was able to assist this dog and family who have helped support so many others through difficult times.
