WHEREAS, Service dogs are extraordinary animals that enable their human companions to live their fullest lives; and
WHEREAS, California benefits from the assistance of K-9 officers, search and rescue dogs, and many other service dogs that serve their communities; and
WHEREAS, Service dogs are trained to perform specific tasks for people in their careers and everyday lives. They can be trained to retrieve objects, assist with balance, give seizure or diabetic alerts, or assist those with psychiatric disabilities; and

WHEREAS, September is celebrated as National Service Dog Month each year to honor the contribution skilled K-9 partners offer their owners; now, therefore, be it
Resolved by the Assembly of the State of California, That the Assembly hereby proclaims the month of September 2021 as Service Dog Appreciation Month; and be it further
Resolved, That Californians are grateful for the service and dedication these loyal companions provide for their owners and communities; and be it further
