Nola’s purpose is to work with children who are physically, developmentally, or emotionally disabled, as well as others who can benefit from the unique qualities that interaction with an animal can provide.

Congratulations to our newest board members John Bellone, Martha “June” Palan and August Daleo who re-elected to a second term. My sincerest thanks to Karl Held and Robert Sanzari who served as members of our Board of Education for three years. Their commitment and dedication was deeply appreciated and will you will both be missed.
