Elmhurst welcomed Goldie, our service dog, in the fall of 2016. Goldie is a golden retriever/husky mix. She welcomes residents and visitors in the main lobby, daily. Our dog-loving residents enjoy spending time with Goldie. Goldie is being trained by therapy dog educators Sid Pond and Melanie Craven, members of the Upper Ohio Valley Obedience Club and WV AKC Educators.
Members of the WVU Masters of Social Work Wheeling Cohort chose our service dog project as one of its fundraisers in 2016. They presented Elmhurst with $700 towards our Goldie project. Thank you!
