Service Dog Awareness Night at Operation At Ease

What’s the difference between a therapy dog, an emotional support dog, and a service dog?

What are the do’s and don’ts when you see a service dog and have an irresistible urge to pet it? What are the rights of someone who has a service dog?

What are your rights as a business owner? Join us at Operation At Ease on Wednesday June 12th at 5pm for a presentation and discussion with Operation At Ease Founder and President Joni Bonilla.

This is a great opportunity to learn the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) rules and regulations pertaining to service dogs and all the information you need to become service dog savvy!

Upstate NY Wounded Vet Run

wvrfbevent.jpg

July 28th 2018

Operation At Ease is teaming up with the American Infidels Motorcycle Club in support of their 2018 Wounded Vet Run. The ride begins at Brunswick Harley Davidson in Troy and ends at Trick Shots in Clifton Park.
This year they will be hosting their second annual Wounded Vet Run on July 28th in support of Army Veteran Paul Miosek and his family. Paul proudly served during Operation Desert Shield where he became permanently disabled after coming in contact with a high voltage power cable. Upon waking from a six-week coma, Paul learned that 15 thousand volts of electricity had shot through his entire body. This tragedy left Paul with a traumatic brain injury, severe burns from his dog tags, eye problems, as well as both legs amputated. In spite of all this, Paul has been able to regain some independence. He is a college graduate and happily married with a wife of 20 years and has three children. All three of Paul’s children have autism and ADHD.
Please support us in helping this family with the many challenges that they still face on a daily basis. The American Infidels VMC NY will donate 100% of the profits of this event to Paul and his family. Providing a sponsorship or donation for this event is unique way to honor a hometown hero.
