ALTOONA, Pa. (WTAJ) — Studio 814’s Rebecca Petner sits down with Joe Fagnani, Chairperson for Service Paws of Central PA, and Branden Hill, a disabled Marine veteran who received his service dog, Zeke, thanks to this great non-profit — SPCP. Hill talks about his time in Afghanistan, his struggles with PTSD, and how Service Paws of Central PA helped him regain various aspects of his life in a positive way.

Service Paws of Central PA (SPCP) is a non-profit, non-residential, community-based organization, founded in 2011 by Ms. Leslie Kelly. All members of the SPCP Advisory Board are volunteers. SPCP was established with the goal of “helping individuals financially obtain a service dog and/or helping defray extraordinary veterinary costs for those currently using a service dog.”
