Name:  Alyssa Tomcho
Major:  Biology (Pre-veterinary)
School:  Wittenberg University
Dogs fostered:  I’ve had one 4 Paws pup (2 semesters)

As soon as I found out about the 4 Paws University Program, I knew that I wanted to be a part of it. What I didn’t know, was how much the experience would change me. Fostering a service dog in training has taught me a lot about the role that service dogs have. During my time as a foster, I have learned a great deal about responsibility, dog behavior, and communication – all of which will assist me in my future as a veterinarian. I have learned to appreciate the little things, like trips to the store and the learning of a command, and I have grown as a person overall. I am honored to have been a part of an organization where I can make a difference in someone’s life, and I hope to be able to continue assisting 4 Paws for Ability in the future.
