Aggie Guide-Dogs and Service-Dogs (AGS), is a student-run organization that began in 1997. Our mission is to educate about, fundraise for, and promote the training and use of service dogs and to increase awareness about how these animals help the individuals with disabilities. Our goals are to train puppies to become service dogs, fundraise for these service dogs, and educate the public about service dogs.
Our meetings are in Room 101 of the Veterinary Medical Teaching Hospital (VMTH, but called VTH on maps), located in West Campus and 7:00PM. At the meetings we hand out Paw Prints to make sure everyone knows what events we have coming up.
Campus Trainings are on Monday of every meeting week! We will meet at a location that is TBA @ 5:15 p.m.
Feel free to contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions that you can't find on the FAQ section, and we'll be happy to help you.
