Community Shares of Minnesota has the CAN DO CANINES -- Reframing the Issue of Accessibility for People With Disabilities. I have attended the heartfelt lecture given by the woman with Diabetes. She made the organization and its impact come alive to me. I also know personally other individuals who have been helped by this organization. One of the persons who works for this organization formally worked in our Veterinary College.
Another charity that has a connection to the Veterinary Library is the ALS Association, Minnesota Chapter which can be found under Community Health Charities. Mrs. Raynolds one of the first librarians of the Veterinary Medical Library had ALS. I was a student worker with Mrs. Raynolds and knew her until her retirement.
